IRO Mark V - 53cm or 56cm for 5'10, 78cm inseam?
I just placed an order for a 53cm IRO Mark V bike Sunday night, and now I'm having second thoughts about the size -- should I have gotten a 56cm frame?
I'm 5'10" and have a 78cm inseam, and my legs are short compared to my long torso & arms. My current bike is an old Raleigh, measuring about 58cm center to center, and I know it's too big for me. This site
suggests multiplying .65 x inseam to get the proper C-C size, and that suggests a 50.7cm frame...
Anybody out there with an IRO have similar measurements to me? What size do you ride?
(I've seen other threads in the forums about IRO frame sizes, but nothing specific to my dimensions, so I thought I'd throw this up here.)
