Colnago CLX3.0

Postby allanr13 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 15:56 pm

Please advise the most suitable size frame for the Colnago CLX3.0:

I am 1.82m (6ft 1) tall
Inside leg measurment: 927mm

I have been given sizes 52cm and 54 cm as well as 57cm - so confusion.

As this bike costs quite a bit and I am ordering it from Europe, I definitely need to know which size is best for me.
Thanks
Allan

6 feet 1 inch = 1.8542m

I'd be surprised if a 52cm frame fitted you. I'd google your question because someone else is bound to have asked a similar question. You also need to check the frame dimensions versus your current bike (assuming you have one) to see how it compares.

If you know what horizontaL (virtual) toptube length you need, use that as the basis - 52cm is probably the compact frame seattube dimension centre-to-centre which is more like 56-57cm in conventional, horizontal tt dimension.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

This for Colnago frames sometimes ie. 52cm sloping is equivalent to 56cm to my knowledge
