Im hoping someone can help.
I currently ride a scott foil 2015 model...so no the latest one...
130 stem -12 zipp sprint slammed
saddle height 755 specialised power not sure if this matters but its a different fit to other saddles
my bars are envy aero ses
i had a bad crash sunday at a local race resulting on a nasty crack on my frame...going through insurance atm
i also have a caad10 with a 120 slated stem( i wish it was 130cm but still fits nicely
im looking i can't decide between a few different bikes
a) the new FOIL prob the team one... not sure i like the way the new one looks but i know they are a great bike
b) BMC SLRR01 haven't got experience i would test when time comes( for now i can only ride indoor due to extended skin growth...aka healing)
c) CANYON AEROAD don't know the sizing of this one.... the headtuve looks short on the size M and tall on the L
id say im M because of the tt size 560 mm just like my other bikes
any help would be awesome...
helping me with size of aeroad?
the BMC SLR01 appeals to me... but im drawn to aero after having enjoyed the FOIL
is the BMC stiff in the front end for hard sprints and uphill big sprints?
how about the abroad...somewhere i read the abroad is flex in the front and bars for bigger sprinters

Cant be wrong right? 56 is from 178 to 182cm and 58 from 182 to 188. My be a matter of what fints you best I guess...
Well... The bike got delivered a couple of days ago in size 56 and another color than I was told (I dont mind the color though).
58 was the ordered size and 56 is the size I got. I know many fairly tall riders prefere 56 so I guess ill be fine. My legs are fairly long and the seatpost has alot of extra in it... caad12 2017.
Worst case scenario would be a longer stem I guess. The seller told me that 2016 was 15mm shorter than 2017. Nothing Ive noticed in geo charts though.
From their calculator, I'm just at the lower threshold of size M. For the M the saddle height is between 72cm and 82cm, so mine would be very near the lower end, while the S is between 69 and 79cm. So should I get an S or an M? W I prefer a more relaxed, not so stretched position, but I'm not sure if the S would have too much drop, or if the M would have too long a reach.

If it helps im 184...and i ride a caad10 in size 56...i think fit is spot on and i wouldn't go bigger....but either way you could work it out... i know folks about same height as us and they're on 58...
It helped out
Was a bit worried but Ive been riding some trainer sessions with it and its all good in size. Probably more good than a 58 size. My pretty long legs is no match for the seatpost (think ive got 160mm sticking out of the frame).
Im a mtber so I feel a bit stretched out. Bikefit on friday will settle that question.
My friend recommened me to choose one of these models
Now I can't decide between GMC Denali and Merax Finiss Aluminum. They have similar characteristics but GMS looks better as for me. But Merax is much cheaper. What do you think?
Looking at a Focus Izalco Max and the sizing between the 50 and 52 are so similar.
Seat Height: 70cm
Im on a Trek Emonda ALR 54 which feels too stretched with a 90mm slammed stem (HT 15.5cm Reach 38.6). However, have been on quite a few pain free centuries, so I think being a little stretched out might be good for me.
Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

I've trawled through a fair few catalogues and couldn't find anything like this, and I don't really want to use a 140mm stem... (Will be using 120mm for 407mm of reach and slammed 17 degrees for 553mm of stack). Thanks in advance!
So you're looking for something with the reach of a 62, but the stack of a 52??
FilmAt11 wrote:@sooni - what was your spacer height on the 54 ALR? That frame has a stack height of 555 and these are -40mm and -35mm lower respectively. I have the same metrics as you, but individual fit differs...for myself, I would probably go XS with 20mm top/spacers and a 120-130mm stem (that's still ~15mm lower than the Trek w/o spacers).
I have the 1.5cm headset cap on the Trek. I found the frame calculator and saw about a 4mm difference in reach and around 20mm lower stack with the 52. I suppose any real difference would be made with the 50cm which has a 10mm shorter reach than the Trek (albeit lower stack). I like a stable ride so I hope the smaller wheelbase top tube, etc doesn't make it too twitchy.
