Kilo TT Sizing Help

Hi,

Is anyone familiar with both the Kilo TT and the Trek Madone 5.2 SL.

I need to buy a hella cheep bike to ride to my urban public high school.

I am a 58 cm in the Madone, any ideas of what size I should get in the Kilo TT.

I couldn't find the geometry table for the 2007 Madones, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

-Adam

I'd say 57. I am 5-10 with long arms and the 53cm Mercier fits well, a little small if anything. I had a 56cm Cannondale R500 before that, and I'm guessing the Trek is sized more like the Cannondale. On the bikesdirect site - they say the 53cm Mercier is equivalent to a 56 (not that there is a "standard" 56 size).

Find your bike on the Trek site, and there is a "View Geometry" link in the lower right hand area under the specs.

Then compare it to this: https://www.cyclesmercier.com/geometry_tt.html
