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

Aquila frame specs

Hello,

My girlfriend is looking at buying a road bike, and she's found an Aquila 53 cm, which corresponds to her sizing as determined by a recent fitting. The bike shop gave her the dimension of the head tube required as well, saying that the top tube and head tube were the most important to get right. The model is apparently an Easton (?), that's painted on the top tube anyway. I've searched unsuccessfully to find specs on this bike. Does anyone know whether all 53 cm Aquila road frames would have the same head tube length or not? Alternatively, can anyone recommend a good site/link for me to investigate this issue at? Thanks in advance!!

Aquila bikes are put together by Racer Sportif which has stores in Toronto and Oakville, Ontario - https://www.racersportif.com/home.htm. Sometimes they source frames themselves, sometimes they build up other frames. Try contacting them.
