I'm 6'1" and ride a Large Litespeed Icon, so a M/L will most likely fit. I would say that you really need to try it though, as my friend is a similar height to me and rides a M/L.

I chose the L based on the headtube length, as the M/L meant that I would have really quite a big drop from saddle to bars without a big stack of spacers.

I'm not sure where you are based, but my friends shop is a Litespeed dealer and you would be welcome to try his M/L, my Large and I think there is another guy in the area on a Medium, so you could try all of them for fit. I'm based in Pangbourne, near Reading in Berkshire.

Cheers for that. A few other people have said go for a M/L so I think I'll do that. Now I need to look at what forks to get Smile

What model are you going for?

The Litespeed Icon and Archon framesets come as standard with a Chris King headset and a set of Easton EC90SL carbon forks.

Xicon looked at other ones but I think that one I'll do me fine. Are they still making the Archon then ? how much ?

The Icon and Archon are the new kids on the block for Litespeed, plus the new Archon C2 carbon frame (not what I'd be going to Litespeed for!).

The Archon is around £3600 for the frameset and the Icon is about £2900, but there are always deals to be had on 2009 frames on the web.
