Alright...so I've decided to get a Surly Long Haul Trucker as a tourng/commuting/utility bike. I wanted to get a custom but I have far too many other bike purchases so I need to penny pinch here and there. My problem is that I'm not sure what size to get?
My road bike is a Specialized Roubaix Expert Compact Rival in XS size (49 cm). It fits me near PERFECT...a custom made Parlee would have nearly identical dimensions. The Surly LHT doesn't have anything quite so perfect for me. Based on standover height, I'd nee a 42 cm. Based on seat-tube length, I'd need something between the 42 cm and 46 cm. Based on toptube length, I'd need something between a 46 cm and 50 cm.
