    help picking a size on a kilo TT .. 57 or 60cm

    hey fellas, i really need help picking a size on the kilo tt. i'm 6'2'', i've ridden a 60cm in the past on a different bike and it was a bit too big for me. i really dont know what size to pick, some people say go with a 57cm for a bit smaller or even a 60cm. i appreciate any help or advice.

    I'm 6'2" and Ride a 57 Kilo with minimal standover clearance and 5-7 inches or so of seatpost exposed. The length is perfect. I wouldn't be able to ride a 60 comfortably.

    Keep in mind these bikes are measured a bit differently than most. I went by what was suggested on the Bikes Direct site and have been very pleased.

    I'd go for the 57. A little extra seatpost or a longer stem looks way less dumb than a saddle slammed down onto the frame.

    i'm 6'5, i was picking between the two myself(i had heard they run a little big and i've ridden a 58 or 59 in the past) i think if i were any shorter i'd feel like it were too big for me
