I did tonight, was waiting for some new shoes compatable with Time cleats to arrive. Just used what I had lying around for a test ride.You gotta swap those pedals. I know how heavy them things are.

There is nothing unusual about those angles, I picked the 028 cos it is similier in stack and reach to Specialized. can't get more usual than that.
I'm 6ft, my inside leg (stocking feet, book on wall to floor) is 33"
I generally find 56cm's feel a lttle small and 58's a little big. My last frame felt small so I orderd a 58, mainly because I wanted a bit of height to help with some neck pain.
TBO it does feel a bit stretched out for me even with a fairly short stem, even though on paper 57.3 is not that long? But this is the first time I've gotten away with flipping a stem (-8). Not been on a proper ride yet either.
Obviously the TT length is not an issue here. How about the head tube length? Seat angle? Wheelbase?FTR said:Tinribz
How tall are you and what is your inseam.
I am stuck between the 58cm and the 60cm.
My Moots has a 58cm ETT, I run a 110mm stem but think I could run a 100mm and I use a Moots layback seatpost.
The 58cm comes with a 57.3cm ETT.
The 60cm comes with a 58.6cm ETT.
I am 6'2.5" tall with a 34.5" cycling inseam.
Sorry rruff, not trying to be smart here, I simply do not understand what you are saying.rruff said:Obviously the TT length is not an issue here. How about the head tube length? Seat angle? Wheelbase?
There is no substitute... figure out the X-Y position of your saddle and bars relative to the bottom bracket, and figure out how to replicate this on the new frame. Then you will know. Until then you will just be guessing.
Yeah, not sure I am measuring this one right.rruff said:That looks like a good calculator. Check your axle-crown figure. Also note the longer head tube on the FM028... that will effect the height of your bars, so consider if that is something you can work with. For instance, if you have spacers under the stem now, then it would not be a problem.
