Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Mercier Kilo TT Sizing

Hey guys,

The bottom bracket on my old conversion is pretty much dead and i thought that a new bike would be a great idea. I have currently narrowed down my choices to the Mercier Kilo TT, but the problem is, is that I'm not really sure what size to purchase. I am approximately 5'9 and a quarter and I have a stand over height of 31.6 inches. I am guessing maybe a 50 or 53... thoughts?

I apologize if this has been posted before.
Thanks

Wow, this is the first thread about size/fit of the Kilo TT. I'm surprised nobody's asked about this before. Don't apologize, learn how to search.

I guess I should try to help you out, and not just be a jerk. I'd say if you were 5'9" I'd go with the 50cm, but you're 5'9" and a quarter, which defiantly warrants the 53cm.

1. Enter your info into this: http://www.tiemeyercycles.com/fit.htm

2. Compare your results to the Kilo's published geometry.
