i ride a 58cm caad9 with a 12cm stem and a 0-setback saddle...but i stand 6 feet 2 inches. with center of bb to top of saddle at 80cm. we're all different, but only to some extent
@ajmit3 - what height of spacers do you run under your stem?
You could also see this the other way around. Two completely different people may require exactly the same setup. For example, Robbie McEwen has his bike set up nearly identical to mine. Nearly the same frame size, saddle height, stem length, etc. (as taken from here)
Yet McEwen is 171cm tall while I am quite a bit taller at 177cm.
Other threads on this exact topic usually end up between a 54 and 56 for a rider OP's size.
How many drivers does a buggy have?
So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
That is my bike, built around a custom geometry Tsunami aluminum frame. It is pretty much a 56cm frame, but with a head tube length you would normally find in a 58-60 cm bike. The cost was something like this:
Frame/ISP topper/Chris King headset - $925
Whisky Parts No. 7 fork - $300
SRAM Rival/Force mix groupset - about $600 (after some careful shopping).
It won't be as light as a CAAD10, but it will fit you well (which is the most important thing). Plus the bike rides great (in my opinion, at least).
