  • Yea, been on there too but not much in a 56 in my price range.

    Any thoughts on the Dolan or Moda. Im impartial and if the Moda Fresco is a decent bike for a noobie to cut his teeth then that'll do, but if a Dolan is a better bike I can keep looking for a 56.

    Or is it just that a 56 is a better fit for a 5'11 person.

    Sorry for all the qs, im completely green with all of this even though I've tried to read loads.

    Im guessing a 180 head tube is not ideal for someone hoping to do more ssprint based disciplines.

    Without knowing more information about your "proportions" I'd say a 58cm will be a bit too big.
    I'm 6"1 and would ride a 56cm although that's sizing down so I think you'd probably be fine on a 56 too

  • I thought the 58 might be big.

    My current road bike, a Carrera (gift from a friend) is a large which by my measurements is 180 HT, 57 ish theoretical TT, 58 CT (roughtly 400 reach, 580 stack and seems to fit ok. but what do I know. All I know it I could manage a lower front.
    I think im fairly well proportioned with slightly shorter legs. Pic of me on rollers
