Bike similar to Mercier kilo wt i can test ride for sizing?
 
Is there anything other than a steamroller (they no longer make complete bikes) I can try out that has similar sizing to the kilo wt? I'm between a 53 and 56 and am having trouble deciding. Also, if anyone has one in these sizes in the chicago area and could let me try it out , I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, anyone who has the motobecane or nashbar cross bikes in a 52-56, I would appreciate that as well.

Just read the stickies about sizing and use the competitive fit calculator and figure it out. Not rocket science. Going to an LBS to have them size you so you can buy a bike online is generally frowned upon

It's what we colloquially refer to as a "dick move" where I come from.

It's a dick move wherever you come from. But to be fair, the OP never suggested that was his plan.

rms13 is right - use the fit calculator.

Haha. Those were the exact words I was going to use but I tried to be more politically correct

The bike run on the large side. I have a 49cm WT5 because the 53cm was gonna be too large.
