I'm a pretty tall guy, (Somewhere around 6'4") and I have an inseam of about 34.5"
I have decided to go for our beloved BD Messenger, but am having a hard time deciding which size frame to get (61cm, or 64cm)
I know you don't want to click to another page, so here are the sizing dimensions for the bike:
What worries me about the 64 cm frame is the standover height, and potentially the toptube length. My inseam is somewhere around 34.5 in (= 876.3 millimeters) and the standover on the 64 is 880. The toptube on the 61 is 20mm shorter than the 64, and I don't really know how to size the top tube. (I looked on Sheldon Brown, and didn't find anything specifically regarding how to find the right top tube length)
This bike is going to be a daily driver, so I am not too worried about my body dying as I ride this, but I would obviously prefer the better fit.
What do you think, 61 vs 64?
