/ Correct size of frame
How far is too far away? I was professionally fitted to my new road bike and it does make a difference.
This frame is a 58cm. I could be a 60 or 56 on a different geometry bike. I am 6'2" ona good day, inside leg 33".
You take take a gamble that pays off, or you could be p1ssing about with seat post and stems for ever!
A mate told me when I was looking at a bike online that 'would I buy a pair of walking boots without trying them on...?' I took her advice.
Hace you got a bike shop locally or a mate with a bike you could sit on and try?
I got the Specialized Sectuer Elite Sport.
Cheers and Good Luck! :)
That seems a bit small to me, I have a 32 inch/81.3 cm inside leg (measured to the floor) and ride a 56 cm frame. Admittedly that is. Compact geometry and the 56 cm stated size is a made up size adjusted to compare with a standard frame, but still my old bike was also a 56 cm and that was standard sizing.
To avoid mixing up cms and inches, I was advised, inside leg x 1.65 (which equates to much the same as your formula).
just a thought - are you sure they make a 57 cm frame , and it's not really a 58 ?
