    Please help a newbie size his bike!

    Hello all.

    Looking at getting a Cannondale CAADX 105 as a do-it-all bike (road riding, touring, gravel paths etc).

    http://www.cannondale.com/gbr/2011/b...aadx-105-19181

    Only problem is there's no bike shop within 100 miles of me that stocks large sizes so I'll have to order without trying.

    I'm 6'3'' with a 36'' inside leg. I seem to fit between a 58 and 61cm frame. All day comfort is my priority, not sure which is likely to have a more relaxed fit. I know some people say to go small on cyclocross frames, however I will not be racing it down mountains, I have a mountain bike for that!

    Any opinions welcome, thanks.

    I think if its not a frame your familiar with you Have to sit your ass on it so many variations and the wrong frame is just a disaster ...I know i have done it with Ebay to many times..If you cant, make sure you can return it with in a certain time frame in Europe we have distance selling rules making this a law.
