i've been trying to figure out my size in a track frame by comparing measurements to my current road bike, which fits me perfectly.
of course, nothing matches up perfectly, and i wouldn't expect them to...
i've done a lot of reading.
some say to go with a bike that most closely matches my current bike. if so, then i'm at 55cm.
other say ignore standover height, and go for a match on TT length. in THAT case, i'm looking at bikes that are like 60cm.
for example - the Kilo TT.
my current bike is a 21.5'' / 55cm, standover 823mm, TT 585mm.
the 55cm KiloTT has about the same standover, but t 560mm TT.
the 57cm KiloTT has about the same TT length, but an 839mm standover.
so i'm confused. which measurement is more important?
should i expect at FG to have a shorter TT?
To put this in context - i'm shopping for my first FG; my (awesome) girlfriend wants to make it a birthday present, so i'm shopping around for complete bikes. i'm looking at the Kilo Stripper, Charge Plug Racer, the 2010 Fuji frames, etc. i've read the threads on those...if anyone feels like throwing in 2 cents on that, i'd be happy to listen.
