pinnarello sizing..colker
Aug 13, 2001 7:07 PM
i guees my size is the 53. would a 54 be too big? does a 1cm bigger size on a pinnarello makes a big difference? i'm 5.9 and my inseam is 31.5 in. i found a good deal on a steel lugged yellow vuelta. this could be my forst road bike.

bug off, loserHank

lol. Hey, what are you doing here?

My guess is that the 54 c-c w/54.5 tt would work just fine for you. Can you ride it first? It's gonna feel a bit different than the Mojo, though...

eh hank! you think it could fit? the frame isn't built though. can't climb on it. should i care for stand over clearance?
it's so pretty: all yellow with those pinstripes and curves painted on the tubes. there are some engraved logos painted in blue also.... a steel fork with chromed crown and it comes with a threaded campy headset and a nice neg. stem. lugs finish the small diameter steel tubes.aaahhh..
the new road bike i was buying, a khs, fell through. i lost love for it. now i found this italian frame. may build it with veloce (yeah, i'm cheap).
ha ha ha! you suck!Hank

Sounds like a nice frame, nothing wrong with Veloce.

interesting what 5ive said below. My friend who is 5' 9 1/2" rides a 55 c-c, so... I doubt standover will be a problem, and the main thing is the tt length--and I really doubt 54.5 will be too long.

Hey colker.

You'll never believe this. I'm 5'9" with 31.5" inseam! And I got my Pinarello Prince 2 weeks ago. Mine is 52cm (c-to-c) and it's a perfect fit. I have relatively short reach (I use a 100mm stem) and tend to buy a frame a size smaller. But I tried a 53cm before buying and thought the seat tube was too big for me. Hope this helps.
