Hello,
I'm thinking of getting a colnago frame in traditional form. I normally ride a size 54 or a medium, I currently ride a Cervelo R5 54cm. I stand 5'9 with short legs 30 inseam. Should the 50s better for the stand over height or the 54t or even the 53t will be touching my crouch. my previous ride was a 53cm SLR01 with a 55cm c-t top seat tube and never had a problem with it.thank you


it always comes to what handlebar drop you are looking for

what is your saddle height ? - c bb to top of saddle along the seatpost

711mm c - t of the saddle, and I'm not particularly worried about seatpost showing, i know most guys like a lot of seat post showing.

i have a saddle height of 71,6

on my R3, with the lowest possible headset bearingcover (8mm), no spacer i get to a handlebar drop of 7 and a bit cms

do you want your handlebar lower, you need to choose one size down

for the c59, do not go larger than 53 (traditional)

Quick help needed from the weight weenie collective, My dad has trouble with his knees and as such wants to replicate his bike across his fleet.He's just purchased a house in majorca so can't afford to buy a brand new super six Evo so is looking for second hand, but I wondered if people knew of any frames that share the same geometry and are DI2 Compatible
any ideas?
many thanks
Bruce

Hi Bruce,

This company rent Cannondale bikes out to riders in the Canary Islands for 3 to 6 months. They then sell them off at ultra cheap prices in comparison to new prices. they told me they completely clad the frame in vynil so that when they sell them on they look new.

http://www.free-motion.net/es/venta-cannondale

It might be worth contacting them to see if they have one for sale that fits your dad.

A very old post I read a while ago in WW. You could take a look.

Looking at a second hand Caad5 size 54cm road frame online. Can anybody who has one tell me the measurement from bottom bracket centre to the top of the seat tube? May not seem important but I have quite a low saddle height and would like to know how much seat post will be on show.

Thanks.

Buying a new S works tarmac, but wanting to go a bit racier than normal and save some weight from the frame.

is it ok if when turning the wheel the foot is at 3 o clock and can hit the wheel. I think its ok as if you turn that sharply then your foot should be at 6 and 12, however I thought i'd best check with some wiser minds.

Cheers
