I got a Blue TR250 in a size Large - thinking a Medium Large would be more my size, but the tech at Blue recommended the Large.

Bike comes with a 110mm stem. Me, I'm 6' (183cm) tall and have a 32' (81.5cm) inseam. Long torso, shorter legs.

I only had a few minutes on the bike last night. Today I'm bringing my roadie in for a side by side comparison, but from the back of the seat to the front of the hooks, my guess is that the track bike is almost two inches longer. Seat hieght is OK. That's a big change in the stem size and that's why I'm thinking I have a frame that's too big.

I'll have an exact measurement later today (seat back to hooks) when I bring the roadie in and compare.


I secretly think that the manufacturer only had size Large in stock and were out of the Medium - Large.
