I am buying a fg/ss from bd.com, kilo tt or moto track what would be a goodsizeforme?
I have been searching through the forums, and I'm sorry if it annoys you that there is another Bd.com thread.
So I want to buy a fg/ss bike from BD.com. I was looking at the Moto track and the Kilo TT.
I will use it to commute, probably over 20 or 30 miles a day(I understand the difficulties of using ss/fg for these distances, I usually go longer than this on the lowest speed of my mtb).
From what I understand, the motobecane track and the Kilo tt seem to be the best deals in the sub 400$ category.
I measured my inseam(with the book between my crotch etc etc).
34 inch inseam, so 86 cm.
I did the conversion multiplying 86cm by .65, and got 56 cm.
I also read that some measurements go by a .67 conversion and got 58.
My current MTB is a 19inch frame and is pretty comfortable)
Should I get a 55 cm, or 57 cm Mercier Kilo TT, or a 56 cm, or 58 cm Motobecane Track?
I was leaning towards the moto track, but some recent reads have suggested if I can fork out the extra cash, get the Kilo TT.
So yeah, any suggestons on the specific bike heights would be great, and any suggestions/comments on the bikes mentioned. I know it's inevitably my decision, I just like to hear others opinions, Thanks!!
