    Biggest one, 600 or 590 I think?

    Cool. Hope it works out for you. For future notice, all composit type saddles with padding, when stripped are the same shell. Helps if trying to get composit on the cheap

    No worries, moved from romin evo 155mm to smp myself. I’m skinny but both worked. Going back to the romin after though was agony. I moved my saddle forward about 10mm, and saddle height measured through dead centre of the saddle rails stayed the same. Angle is super import, and no saddle more diffficult to set up but worth it

    How much are you varying the angle? Very small differences (talking 0.5 degree in saddle angle can make a big difference).

    Use a chopping board/flat surface and an app on your phone to see how many degrees nose down your saddle is. Find what angle your hands/squashables feel comfy in the hoods, and then drop saddle angle by o.2 degrees every 3 or so proper rides (>30k) until things feel good in both drops and hoods. Then make a note of saddle height, setback and angle so you can replicate it if things ever get messed up or need to change. Sounds a pain but once things are dialled in you'll forget saddle related misery exists.

    really depends on his fit, flexibility, whether he races, but he’d most likely be better with a 58. A 58 is likely to handle better too, as trail figures tend to get quite low in larger frames.

    Im 193, run 180mm cranks, 802mm saddle height and feel most comfy with a stack/reach of around 610/405 with 120mm stem and 9cm bar drop. For most sizes I’m in between 58-61. Rough estimate for that frame stack/reach is 58-590/394, 61-620/400. So depends on how much bar drop he wants?

    My dad's bike was stolen from outside south ealing station yesterday, whilst he was on the way to hospital for a check up. It was a blue and white columbus thron geoffrey butler, with brooks b17 narrow and mixed shimano groupset, i think size 58. If anybody sees anything suspiciously similar please let me know.
