Hi

I just bought a used 2004 Giant OCR2 size XL (did not realize that big size until paying for it and coming home) . The ad was saying 2004 Giant OCR2 56cm so that why I thought it was my size. Anyway, I was able to stand over the bike and my crotch is touching the fame (that did not sound good). Now after 1 ride I think it too big for me. BTW, i am around 5'11- to 6'0 and around 32inseam.. I did measure the crotch to floor and it was 80cm. I got a good deal for the bike but it look like I have to sale it now. I feel it was too large :(

Thanks all

Not if you are 13yo and about to grow a bunch.

Yup, now after that 1 ride it was seem too big.. Too bad because the OCR2 is a nice beginning road bike. I was in the mountain bike for a while but a 1st time roadie. Oh well, got to learn from it and look for another one now.

Thanks
