Schwinn Fastback: XL for 6'/34 inseam?(1 post)

Schwinn Fastback: XL for 6'/34 inseam?Gator
Mar 14, 2002 11:44 AM
Hey. I've got a pretty good deal lined up on Fastback, but the compact sizing is giving me fits -- no pun intended. I'm 6', have a 34" inseam, and no gross malformities, i.e., arms down to my ankles.

I've been led to believe that an XL is the ticket for me, but it seems odd that I'd need an XL. However, the guy who is selling it is 5'11" and says the effective tt is about 59 cm. Seems perfect, but...

Anyone know anything about how to size these bikes? (BTW, if you have any general comments about the bike, bring 'em on.)
