Perhaps my inside leg measurement is incorrect, given that's the only one that hasn't been taken by a professional?!
Probably, most people are way off in what they quote. But are you sure you're 174cm? As in 5'8"? because a saddle height of 80cm at that height is genuinely nuts.

I have little doubt every single one of his measurements is wrong...

twc, the reason for the questions is resolving the fit issue before you spend $$$$ on a new frame.

So you're running the cleats all the way back, what shoe size? For ~eu45 shoes that would be ~11mm behind BoFOPS, and results in a saddle height ~7mm lower than standard BoFOPS.

Leg length: this is sit bones to the floor, skivvies, socks, no shoes or chamois. Butt and heels against the wall, put a dictionary between your legs and pull up with the same compression as sitting on the saddle. The book's bottom edge needs to be flat on the wall so the book's spine is level. Have your assistant measure from the spine to the floor.

I find that people still like KOPS when the cleats are moved back. So,
Saddle height (Cleats back) = legLength x 0.898
or cleats at BoFOPS = legLength x 0.907.
Obviously these are start points, adjust to suit. 3mm is a noticeable change.

Def 174cm height, measured by the doc.

Shoe size is 44.5.

Re. leg length measuring - the process you describe is exactly how we measured my inside leg, so should be pretty accurate.

Going to try riding the 56cm frame on Friday so should be able to tell whether it's the right size or not from that.

The thread completely went sideways from the original tittle but man... 174cm and 44.5 shoe size is really something! :D

Don't worry. I'm also new to the sport. I think you need all the help from people around here. Before you buy the wrong sized frame.

As for height and shoe size I'm on the other side of the sprectrum with 180cm and shoe size no 39/39.5 (depending on brand - which also depending on the brand makes me search for product in the kids section).

There is small plastic bit made on the bottom of seatpost which holds the battery in place

I have an Addict RC15, and last night replaced the 11-30t cassette with a 11-32t. I also changed the Di2 R8050 short cage derailleur with a medium cage. Now it is almost impossible to fit the rear wheel - the derailleur arm doesn't pivot back far enough to allow clearance between the 11t cog and the jockey wheel. Deflating the tyre, or removing the derailleur seems to be the only options. Anyone else seen this ?

This is my first Di2 bike, so it is entirely possible I just don't know the correct procedure for rear wheel changes (but I didn't have any problems removing/installing the rear wheel with the 30t cassette)...

Bad news.
My frameset was for the 9 March. Now it will be a month later, because the arrive is for the April. I am waiting from October 2019 and I think that 6/7 months to deliver a frame are a very unpleasantness.

I find it absurd not to respect such long dates.

Finally, there is also the risk that due to the coronavirus the frame will still be delayed or will never be delivered again.

Never again scott.

I'm usually very critic to brands no fulfilling their commitments. In this case, there are some mitigating factors.

As you said, the Coronavirus was something totally unexpected. Its creating problems to scott but also to all other brands, both in cycling but all industries (there are textile factories in Europe closing down because they don't have the raw materials that would usually come from China).

You are waiting for the ultimate version, aren't you? My lbs when commenting about that one immediately told me that the wait would be severe as they only make a couple of them for each country!!

As for scott, I ended up buying an addict versus a canyon because with the canyon I would have to be always scouting their website for availability. I didn't want that and I preferred the confort of having a representative.

I won’t be so kind. This bike was announced in June 2019. It is now the end of February 2020. Some companies really can’t resist soft-launching products.

And the price was revealed in September. I ordered only a month later. So I shouldn't be so far in the queue but many months have already passed.
