Diverge Elite E5

Hi,

I am around 6ft2-3 and have an inseam of 92-93cm. I got a 58 but when I sat on it it seems right but I don't know how to tell. The saddle seems a good bit above the handlebars. I have never had a dropper bike before. I am trying to figure out the size of the bikes as I am not sure if 58 is too small or 61 too big. Any help would be appreciated as soon as possible as I need to know if I need to return the bike

Hopefully the shop is good at fitting and did not sell you something that does not fit. You can have a fitter separate from the shop evaluate the fit for you. Generally for someone your height we would put you on a 60-61 but there are a lot of variables. If you have shorter legs for your height then maybe a 58 with an extended stem? Really a fitter needs to look at things.

I was fitted on a 60cm Trek Emonda ALR 5 in 60 but i felt a bit stretched out on the reach. Thanks for the advice. I will have to see if there is someone around that can try fit me!

According to Specialized fit chart, you are at the top end of a 58 and bottom end of 61. In this case, since you have no complaints with the fit, I would trust that the shop has you on a proper size. You should expect to have saddle to bar drop, that's just how drop bar bikes are. Nice choice of bike, btw.

If it seems right, that's a good sign. I won't offer any advice, but I'm 6 feet even and am very comfortable on my 58 Diverge.
