    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.
