all of the 2014 and 2015 izalco max bikes had the acros headset. as far as i can tell from the photos, all of the 2016 bikes have a fsa (or similar) headset.

as for the 2016 range, it appears to be mainly different paint jobs and a few specification changes.

i would suggest getting a 2015 model so that you can maybe pick up a sale price.

Yes, 54 probably best. I am 173/85 (yes, very "leggy") and riding 52.
Note: izalco max comes with "acros the clamp" headset, which has a 17 mm top cap.


I see you have short reach for your height. What size stem do you have? I am 171/80 and debating a 50 or 52. I've tried both with 90cm stems and am still debating...

i have nearly identical measurements (174/85), and riding a 52 as well. 100mm stem 6°, topcap 15mm, bar 80 mm reach.
i would recommend you framesize 50.

Very nice bike. I think I am going to pull the trigger on the 50cm. I get the shorter reach only at the expense of the 5mm smaller wheelbase and 5mm of stack height. This way I could toggle between a 100mm or 90mm stem, while I would have to stick with the 90mm on the 52.

Hello,
I am interesting to buy a new Izalco Max Disc but I hesitate for the size.
I am 1.76m with 77.5cm inside legs with 70.9cm for the saddle.
Could you give me your opinions?
Thank You.

I measure 175 cm, 80 cm inseam and ride a 52 cm, soon with a 0 offset post, should be perfect. 100mm stem now, will try a 110 mm...

My saddle height is 70.6, so I find it strange that you have a 3cm shorter inseam but a higher saddle... hm?
