Hi all,

I just wrote off my 2003 Giant TCR C1 so am on the hunt for a new frame.
I've spied a nice Scott Addict R3 frameset for sale in a 54cm size, but am not sure on whether it'll be too small or not.

I've been through a Specialized BG fit, but am terrible at trying to work out what I need for putting that over to a new frame.

The TCR I was on was a 55.5 but in semi compact geometry.

I am 6' flat. 182cm tall, inseem ~84cm
From my old fit, I have the following:

Saddle height from center of BB - 767mm
Saddle fore/aft - -58mm
Reach - 730mm
Drop - 110mm
Knee angle - 30degrees

Also have:
Front hub to handle bars - 550mm
Tip of saddle to center of handlebars - 580

Currently running a 100m stem, its got a shim in it for heaps of angle options so hopefully can stay with that.

If there is any other measurements needed I should be able to do them pretty simply.

Thanks for any help!

You need to go by Scott frame sizes, as there is no universal frame size that's consistent throughout the industry.

Just go wherever that specific model of Scott bike is located and mount it for an approximate fit.
