So an opportunity came knocking on the door. A TIME VXRS! - dream bike I never got to own back in the day. I have scoured the interweb or world wide net for the length of the integrated seatmast but haven't come up with anything

Need some help with regards to geometry.

How Long is the integrated seatmast? I am kind of stuck inbetween sizes S & M.

M being great with the headtube (no spacer tower) but I am afraid of that too much of the integrated seatpost will be cut making for an awkward bike

I am 1.83m with a center of BB to TOP of saddle height of 77.5cm.

S would mean a few spacers but I am afraid there might not be enough integrated seat tube.

Your help is much appreciated

Thank you!

I rode both the RXR Ulteam and Scylon (current bike) and both were in M size.

I'm 1.83cm with a 89 cm riding inseam and never had to cut the ISP.

Based on that I would say that the M sized VXRS should fit your perfectly.

At 1.83 definitely M is the correct size.

A time was also my dream bike back in the day. Take the opportunity, they're great bikes. I'm 5' 11 with a 32(roughly inseam, 76.5cm saddle height and ride a size M as well.

One of my all time favorites. Don't know why, it just speaks to me.

They are wonderful bikes, and, coincidentally the red one is exactly my size. But I have to say, I bought an NXRS and was underwhelmed, just a bit dead as a frame for feel, cornering, over rough ground, etc,whilst paradoxically being twitchy for example riding no hands.
