Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's all right, but treat it as a guideline. People here will recommend getting fit in a shop, and while more expensive, it's probably a better bet.

I kind of figured out my bike fit through experimenting on different bikes. My first bike was a 52 cm top tube with a 100mm stem - it was too small. Then I went to a 55 cm top tube with a 110 - too big. Swapped it out for a 90mm stem - still a little too big. My next bike's most likely going to be a 53 cm top tube with a 100 mm stem. Should put me about where I need to be.
