  • @Lolo thanks for the reply, informative.

    This afternoon I am going to talk to a dealer who might be able to do some more accurate assessment so that I can see how feasible that frame is.

  • Saddle height and set-back should be the same regardless of the bike
    (bearing in mind we're talking commuting/road here).

    Well that's not true. I thought KOPs had been debunked? As I said above, don't get fixated with certain numbers. Want an aggressive track bike fit? You'll probably need to move your saddle forward a bit compared to your road bike.

  • Who mentioned KOPs or track use?

  • The bike the OP is looking at appears to be some sort of track bike.

    Maintaining the same saddle setback regardless of bike type sounds very KOPSian to me. I'm surprised anyone can ride an MTB or a TT bike with their saddles so far forwards!

  • @debo I have never considered an XS, I was undecided between a S/52 and an M/54. I went for the shortest one, because I would like a higher seatpost and a longer stem. I am not sure I have achieved that, as I haven't built it yet :)
