Hi,

Do you know about sizes of Mongoose bikes ? I currently have a Trek 56cm OCLV bike, and I am 5'9 (the bike is a bit large but otherwise fits fine). I was wondering if sizes correspond for the titanium frames by Mongoose (is 56Trek equivalent to 56Mongoose ? )

Thanks,

Pierre

Mongoose Ti frames are built by Titanium Sports (titaniumsports.com). The geoemtry charts are here: http://www.titaniumsports.com/bikes/geometries.html

The mongoose website (mongoose.com) only appears to list 2002 road bikes that are all aluminium with sloping top tube designs.

A 56cm Trek measures similar to a 54cm center to top frame. It shouldn't be "large" (vertically or horizontally) for someone of your height. A 54cm Mongoose Ti should be the appropriate size.
OK thanksPeterRider
