Extra Small. Center BB to top of saddle is 72.2cm. I am only 169cm but my inseam is 83cm.

Thanks. The bike is great and rides beautifully. I have had many good bikes over the last 3-4 years and this one is right up there with the best.

Update with the new arrival in the family. It will be used for Road racing and the odd TT.

Rode the Helium for 235Km last weekend and this is the best bike I have owned and ridden. The frame is great, the components are perfect but more important, the geometry just suits me perfectly. What a joy to ride. I know the Noah won't be as smooth but it was not added for the same reasons as well, so that's just fine.

Some minor changes to the Helium....MADFIBERs clincher which came in at 1282 grams. They will be used on the new Noah when the warranty frame comes in later this month but for now, they are part of my fun riding Helium! :D
