Redline Frame Set sizing(4 posts)

Redline Frame Set sizingpherret

I am looking at purchasing a redline conquest frame set. I have called several lbs and no one has them in for me to test ride. I am trying to determine if I need a 58cm or a 60cm. I am 6foot 2in with a 35in inseam. Most of the riding will be commuting and maybe a little gravel and dirt. I will build this up with 105, any opinions on running a triple or a double?

Thanks for any help.

People say Redlines run big. I would go by the desired top tube length. I ride a 54 cm road bike, but my Redline is a 52cm. My stem length is the same for both bikes, but my bars are higher relative to my saet with the Redline.

I'm 6'3" with a 36" inseam. My roadbike is a 60cm, but I ride a race a 58cm Conquest Pro.

And, honestly, it's a little big. I wish they made a 57cm.

I have a conquest and it runs super tall compared to a road bike. The top tube is fairly short for the stand over height. I run a 57 road and a 56 CX and I could use the bar clearance...:) I would say if you are longer in leg then torso you'll be fine fitting straight up but if it is the reverse go down 1 or maybe even 2 sizes. Hope this confuses everything.
