Hi there everyone, first time poster here. Looking for a bit of advice. I am looking to replace my ageing and battered Raleigh M-Trax as an all year bike.
I am looking at the Kinesis T and TK, probably second hand, but I seem to fall between the 54cm and 57cm sizes based on the geometry of current bike which fits me pretty well. I am 5'10" with a slightly short torso. Any advice/thoughts from owners on the sizing would be much appreciated.
SOLD. GONE, FINITO..etc etc,
Kinesis Racelight T, with ITM Carbon forks and Headset. £75, if collected, £90 posted in the U.K.).
in fairly good nick but with the usual small scratches etc.
Size - top tube 56cm, but slightly sloping so 57cm in reality.
- seat tube 52cm from BB to center of top tube, 57cm to top of seat tube.
- headtube 14.5cm, with 6cm of steerer tube to play with.
collection would be preferred (Bristol) but can send if need be.

Kinesis have this bike down as a true all-rounder, with the FiveT being touted as a (deep breath) cyclo-cross/tourer/winter trainer/commuter. So is it a true do-everything bike or a jack of all trades and a master of none?
