    Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno Sizing Question

    Howdy Friends,

    I am 5'10" ish with a 30 inch inseam. I have a longer torso and I am looking to get a SS cross bike. Should I get a 56 cm? 56 bikes have fit me before. What are your suggestions with this bike?

    Thanks,

    Rabbit.

    Thanks man. I am just concerned with this bike because some say that the sizing on BD website is inaccurate. I am thinking I might need a 56 but I would like to hear from someone who has a 30 inch inseam who is about 5'10 has also bought this bike.

    Compare to the BD site, looks the same. The charts should be good to go.

    You think it should do a 54cm or a 56?

    You can't size a bike based on your inseam. Top tube length is the most important factor.
