Can you knowledgable cyclists guide me here.
Looking at either a Cannondale or Specialized road bike. I'm 6ft tall with a 33in inside leg measurement. Have noticed measurements are no longer displayed in inches.
What frame size would I require or you recommend?
(58cm or 61cm frame maybe?)

Thanx

The shop you buy from should be able to fit you properly. But idealy for your height something in the 56-ish cm range would be a safe bet to fall into.

Generally, I would think a 56 would be okay , but a cycleshop would be able to fit you in person, and take into account the many human and ergonomic variables your specific situation presents .

Was going to order an online delivery.
But may as well go to a local bike specialist first and get sized up prior to making order.
Thanx guys

Yes it feels good I had a fit done at the local bike store my old bike was a 58 but the 56 feels better.

Best price i found for the model was online. Was thinking of ordering 58cm prior to posting, glad I posted now as you guys given me impetus to go get myself sized up correctly for this particular bike elsewhere prior to ordering.

Are you going to load up on accessories and have your service done by this shop? Or are you just going to have them help you find the right size, then order from someone else?

By the way, it needs to be the same bike, you can get sized for a Giant, then go order a Specialized.

Erm yeah... I do realise I need to check out the same make of cycle that I wish to purchase.
And if that cycle establishment stocks the model and can price match within 7% then they'll get my business.
