Hey guys, any Dogma owners out there riding the 47cm? I've done some research, read a few things on this site and others, etc...Really interested in getting some feedback from those who went with a 47 vs the 50 or even the 51.5 for that matter (though I think the 51.5 would be a stretch, litterally). Without getting into the gritty details of fit as I know there are several factors and riding preferences that go into it, I'm between the 47 and 50 being 5'7", inseam of 30, reach of 60cm. I've spent a lot of time with my fitter and could really go either way. My fitter is leaning towards the 47 as it does have that extra 5cm on the head tube which would result in the very important looks dept with that much less in spacers
Smaller frame, lower weight...BONUS
Though I will lose that extra cage hole.
As a reference, I currently ride a 54 in an SWORKS Tarmac. I could have gone with a 52 (as I'm also between these sizes) but wanted that taller head tube at the time. I will say that I do feel slightly stretched (100 stem) but generally feel comfortable on it. But if I had to do it again, would probably go with a 52.
Would love feedback and would love to see some pics of Dogma's in the 47. Is the 'sloping' top tube that much more pronounced? Google image search isn't really clear to me if I'm looking at 47cm frames! Pics please!!!
Hi did you get your self sorted, as im more or less in the exact same predicament as you, in 168cm 5ft6.5 in old money ride with saddle at 69.5cm, and like you ive seen and read people similar size either opting for the 47 and 50, im leaning more to the 47 i know the 50 looks better with the top tube more squared off but when your riding it you or any one cant tell and the pros always seam to go smaller than they should as a smaller frame is more nimble less weight etc
