    Frame Size Advice

    Thanks for your help on the other thread. I've pretty much made up my mind on a Cannondale T2000. Unfortunately, because of where I leave, I don't have the opportunity to test ride and therefore have to order online.

    My problem is choosing the right frame size. I'm just over 6ft with an inseam measurement of just over 32inches. What frame size should I opt for? (I appreciate there's an element of subjectivity here, but unfortunately I'm not in the position where I can test ride).

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve.

    To add to my previous post, the Cannondale size specs from their website:

    MEDIUM
    Standover height - 30.2 inches
    Horizontal top tube length - 20.8
    Seat tube length to top - 19

    LARGE
    Standover height - 31.6 inches
    Horizontal top tube length - 21.5
    Seat tube length to top - 21

    EXTRA LARGE
    Standover height - 33.1 inches
    Horizontal top tube length - 22.5
    Seat tube length to top - 23


    I'm guessing the XL size is too big, but I'm not sure about whether medium or large would be the better fit.

    my advice is to go to a LBS and have them size you up before you spend a grand+ on a bike.

    I started out here asking the same questions when I was looking for a bike over the net. It became much easier after I went to the LBS and asked them to size me. They really shouldnt mind doing it. Mine charged me 5 bucks.
