Hello, I'll order an 2018 Addict RC Ultimate Disc and I just want to make sure Size M-54 is the right size.

Does anyone know if Size 54 allows me to use 760mm saddle high?

Thanks guys!

Yes, It does. But you will have a lot of seat post sticking out of the bike.
Also- front end will be quite low.
I have the same bike in Medium- My saddle height is 73.2cm- I think the bike would be too small for someone with a much taller saddle height-

I would also advise a size large.

Well, I'd hope M/54 can be used with 760mm seat height - I have a Premium on order in the same size for the same seat height :-)

I'm confident it's the right size for me (short torso, long legs). I now ride a Tarmac SL4 size 54 with a 510mm seat tube (ctr-top). The Addict in M has a seat tube of 525mm, so with the same saddle it would have a bit less seat post sticking out. The frame dimensions of the Addict in M and Tarmac SL4 in 54 are actually very close overall.

Interesting to see the L/56 with 770mm seat height. The L has a 545mm seat tube so the seat post stick-out is only 10mm less than what I would have on the M.

For me the main dimension to base a frame choice on is the top tube horizontal (my SL4 548mm, the Addict 550mm). While the L can also be used with a 760mm seat height it would just be too long for me.

Enjoy your bike I'd say! :thumbup:
