this page would be 25 pages long if ****ing *******s like yourself would stop *****ing about simple questions. the energy it took you to write your stupid pathetic response could have been used constructively to help someone that asked an innocent question.

Hey everyone. I have yet another sizing question.. and before everyone goes nuts, I've used the search, read the first 26 pages of this thread, as well as the last 30 pages of this thread, and I'm still left with questions. And for all who feel that everyone should read all 163 pages of this thread, realize that's nuts.

My question is.. would a 50cm kilo tt from last year (or even when they first came out) have the same dimensions of the 50cm kilo tt of the most recent shipment? I'm reading all sorts of mixed reviews.. some recommend the 50cm for people between 5'5-5'7.. then there's others who recommend the 50cm for people as tall as 5'9. Call me crazy, but that's quite a range. As for the 53cm kilo, I've read posts of people as short as 5'7 the getting 53cm kilo.

So for someone who's 5'8 with about a 30in inseam, what would be the most ideal size for the current kilo's?

Thanks in advance.

Once again people worried about inseam/stand over height without thinking about top tube length.

You guys just don't get it.

You can have 2 dudes both with a height of 5'5" and they could have inseams 2 inches different from one another, and/or a torso/arm length difference.

yeah but if they state height + inseam, couldn't you take the difference of the numbers? if someone is 5'5" with 32 in inseam, and take someone that's 5'5" with 31 in inseam. inches have to be made up somewhere. last time I looked at normal people we didn't have giraffes walking around. but whatever people on this forum are quick to shun you versus help you. If I knew some of you and saw your negative asses riding around I'd shove a broomstick through your spoke and then who'd be laughing? ME!!!!!!!! hahahahahaha. but truth is I'm just playing, a little vent from the mio!

You'd be surprised the difference and inch can make in bike fitment especially in regards to being stretched out/crunched up when reaching for the handlebars. Bike fit is more then just a seat tube length. You're telling me that if I took two bikes with the same 50cm seat tube length, but one had a 515 reach, and the other had a 535 reach, it wouldn't make a difference? riiiight... a stem will only do so much until it starts making the bike steering feel different (for better or worse).

This is the same with that Knee Over Pedal Spindle mess, and the saddle height calculations. You should only take them as guidelines because femur length and other variables come into play.

If you feel I have shunned you vs helped, perhaps you should search all the posts I have made in this particular thread showing people how to get the best fit possible for a bike they can't go sit on (do a username search). It is not just a seat tube game.

And furthermore, you wouldn't do a god damned thing if you saw me riding around. Stop frontin'

The least you guys could do is stop being lazy and use the wrench science fit calculator with a tape measure, plug your values in, and get an estimate (not to be taken as the gospel) for guideline fitment.

They will give you seat tube and top tube length you "need" to be on.

Competitive Cyclist also has a fit calc also.

Take these said values and compare to this chart:
https://www.khsbicycles.com/PDF/KHS_F...etry_Track.pdf

Pay attention to values A, B, and C. Choose the frame which closest to what wrench science tells you and be done with it. Remember, it is just a guideline.

or you can stop caring and policing this thread

No matter how helpful you are, there will still be clueless people that need to learn to use the internet on their own.

Just ordered a 53cm black. Ships out on the 7th, I cannot wait to get it. What assembly is required and does anyone have any pictures of the initial package?

no fronting here, i'm not a typical cyclist, I do it to get in shape, i'm all military of 8 years here. MMA is my prime area of expertise so when i say i'll stick a stick in your spoke you should consider yourself lucky it's not sticking out your cycling shorts! i don't mess around like you assume. but that's besides the point. i believe people should get professional fit for exact fit. but for general 55, 53, 57 cm of getting a bike, i think you can get a general idea to order on the internet. after that, then go to the LBS to get specific measurements for the rest.

And Jaeone, none of my vent was referred to you unless your the one providing posts making people feel like they can't come online to get answers from people that have adequate knowledge.

You can use assembly instructions for just about any bike off the net. The manual that comes with it is generic anyway.

Read the damn thread. I KNOW somewhere somebody posted pictures of what the bike looks like and what assembly is required.

You're trippin...

People ask redundant questions. I am all for answering good questions, but come on, people here act helpless. The search function works perfect. Then when you do tell them a proper educated answer, they wanna hear what they wanna hear.

I will say your right about some people and their incompetence ,but what angers me is when all I asked was if the stem was a quill stem or not. I get a bunch of smart ass remarks stating, "it's been posted at page four thousand five hundred and fifty two, yada yada yada" (like I have nothing better to do with my life than read 164 pages of, how do I put it.........a bunch of complaining). Don't get me wrong, there's a ton of useful information here, I just really have too much on my plate to filter through all the crap.
