hi every one, for the life of me, cant find any data to figure out the numbers for the reach on the 2008 SL1 reach, the bike will be the 47 model that has the 524.9 top tube, thank you

Stack 515mm, Reach 379mm for 2009 SL1 not given for 2008 model but the geometry seems the same

thanks, i didnt even think about that way of checking, did check the archive for 2008 only, thanks again, one more question, I have an cervelo rs in 54 and was trying to go down in size to shorten the reach, the rs is 376 in 54 and how is it that the sl1 is 379 and so much smaller of a bike?
thanks

Look at the seat tube angles, RS 73 deg V SL1 74.5 and the head tube length, RS 160mm V SL1 120mm
if you needed say an extra 40mm stack of spacers under the stem to get the bar drop the same that will shorten the reach,
Maybe the SL1 not really for you.

yeah, you might be right, i was actually looking for somehthing with a shorter TT, some one has a great deal to me for the SL1, but looks like the fit might not be good

cervelo and fuji use 2 different methods for expressing frame size, and both methods aren't really compatible with one another. for example, i would ride a 47cm fuji altamira or a 51cm cervelo r5, but both frames have similar seat tube, top tube, and head tube measurements. it's very difficult to compare sizes from 2 different manufacturers. in the end, the best thing to do is compare the geometry numbers.
