5'10" and on a 50cm frame? dang!


Interestingly enough, I'm also 5'10" but on a 54cm frame with a 80mm stem after fitting. I'm still trying out the shorter stem, but I'm not particularly happy about how the bike handles steering inputs now, so much so that I'm thinking of asking the bike shop to see if they can get me a good deal on a frame swap and may end up with a small frame like incredibleting.


your bike too big bro.

unless u are king of da yoga, i wouldn't go 50cm for that height. incredible ting is just incredible on a 50 that's slammed...

im 5'7 and ride a 50cm, after riding a 52cm for a year.

This bike still looks stellar. Would love to see it with gumwalls again though!


I wish. Didn't want to spend $120+ per tire for the tubular version just for crits.

No idea who would fit someone to a larger frame with an 80mm stem...
To be fair, the TT of the 50cm is 52.5. I test rode a 52cm before I bought my caad, just decided I liked the feel of a smaller frame. I could post a pic of me riding if anyone wants.

They didn't fit me to the frame, it was a fitting done on a bike I already had, so I guess when I picked it up it was too large and I've just been riding a large bike. I'm giving it another week of riding before I ask for a frame swap (or maybe just sell the bike and pick up a new one...).

Wit the new FFWD wheels the bike looks really fast! The Stronglight rings are too much for me though.

I know it's in vogue to ride tiny frames with giant stems and setback seatposts but I find a some point the negatives outweigh the positives.

I didn't really notice a difference in shifting. The CT2 shifted amazingly well already. They are stiffer though.


found out the answer to my own question. TT rings and the CT2s, the ramps and profile are identical. Just there is added material for tt ringz. =) for da stiffnezzes

Thanks! I am thinking of a new carbon frame soon, perhaps a Giant TCR Advanced SL. I know two people who cracked their carbon frames (BMC, SL4) from crashing in the races over the weekend so now I am reconsidering :(

I don't race, so it's easier to just go for carbon :D On the other hand, my friends are trying to get me to enter a crit race this coming season... :|
