Transition from a kilo tt 50cm to 09 Pista 49cm
Just traded a 50cm kilo tt for an 09 49cm Pista and I've gotten so used to my kilo that It's getting hard to adjust the new bike and I am not too good at sizing the bike properly. I feel like I need a longer reach. My standover is perfect because the Kilo was a little too high. Does anyone have any ideass on what I can try to get the feel of the pista the same as the mercier. I was thinking of switching to a 120mm stem because raising the seat high to the point that my foot is fully extended when the crank is at its lowest point still does not help with the reach. Maybe I'm just over reacting and I need to get used to this frame all on its own.
I am 5'7 with a 30" inseam if that helps
All else fails I'll go to my lbs and pay a markup on a black turbo saddle to get them to help me adjust the bike to fit me better.
