Is it ok ... ? :)
I am currently riding a Boardman Team Carbon XL (Top Tube 58.5, Seat Tube 57). From my LBS I was told that the bike is essentially one size smaller than what I should had, when i was fitted on it, but its ok since one size smaller is better than bigger.Unfortunately Boardman does not create a bigger size so I took the bit smaller than what it should be frame.
Moreover, I was told that the seat tube size is not really important since the seat post can be adjusted accordingly vertically and that the size of the top tube is more important, since it cannot be adjusted, and any small corrections can be made with the size of the stem or a seat post with setback.
I got the opportunity to get a great frame for a new project with the following sizes
ST - 59 cc - 60.5 ct
TT - 58 cc
HT - 17.5
Taking into account that I am 1.92 m with a 86 inseam, the size of my current bike and the fact that i was told that I could easily take one size up if existed, will the size of the ST be ok for me ?
Thanx in advance
