Does anyone have information on the seat tube C-T measurements for the Kestrel Evoke. I am looking at the 59cm frame but the 59cm is the top tube measurement. The Kestrel geometry sizing chart has every measurement except the seat tube C-T.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The 59cm is listed as a c-c frame size, not the TT length. That would be a measurement to a "virtual" (horizontal) top tube. Since the top tube slopes, the acutal dimension will be much smaller.

Do you want to know the actual seat tube length, just to figure out how much seat post will be exposed? That's all the value that this dimension has. It has NO effect of the fit of the frame.

If you want to figure out the vertical size of the frame, you need to look at the head tube length, with the headset to figure out the minimum and maximum lengths with spacers. The HTL is 182mm and the headset will add a 24mm to that, if it's the tall model listed. Generally, you can add up to 3cm in spacer.
