I am 5'4" (163cm) with a 28.5 inch (73) cm in-seam with long femur in relationship to the lower limb . I am planning to get a Argon 18 Krypton but are unsure where to get a XXS or XS. Would like to get some advise from the seasoned riders here.
Basically, here are the geometry of the 2 sizes
- TT = 50cm
- ST = 43cm
- HT = 9-11.4cm
- TT = 52cm
- ST = 46.5cm
- HT = 10-12.4cm
I did have the opportunity to sit on the XXS and the standover height seems spot on. However, when I am on the drop. The hub is way in front of the bar, when I am on the hood it is less servere but still noticable, staff from the LBS swapped out the 80mm stem and put in a 100mm stem. It cure the problem to an extended. However, I hub is still slightly infront of the bar but not by a whole lot.
This is what it looks like when I am on the XXS with 80mm stem, before fitting.
Just want to hear your opinion in know whether this is right size or whether I should go up to XS.
