Do you know the length of the headtube on a new integrated headset Med. TCR frame. The website doesn't list this spec.
Thanks.
My medium TCR headtube is 5.55" long ......JohnG

I'm not sure where you're going with this question.

What is your height and bike-inseam length?

FWIW: I'm 5' 8" with a 32" inseam and the medium is right at the limit of good sizing for me. My ideal stem length would be a 10.5cm which is just a tad short, IMHO.

BTW, it's a good frame. Fairly comfy for Al.

I can get a great deal on a new Med., I really like the frame but I'm torn between the Giant and having a custom race frame built. I have long legs and a short torso.....and I'm not particularly flexible so I'd like a reasonably tall headtube so I dont have to flip my stem up and run spacers, what I have to do now. I'll probably have to go custom with a 170mm head tube. Thanks for the info.
