fits and TTs on TCR carbon(5 posts)

fits and TTs on TCR carbonPeter E

My LBS is expecting a TCR carbon very soon and im thinking alot of releaving him from it immidiatly. But how would that bike be for racing TTs with? i've seen some racing it in TTs and i think that the bike would be rather aerodynamic and vell suited för TTS if you just put aerobars on it when it's time. Don't wanna buy me another bike just for TTS because i think that's a bit much.

I also wonder a bit about fit. it's a medium frame he is getting and i'm 188 cm long, 90 cm inseam. Would a medium TCR fit me?

you might want to give us your torso length as well. based on height alone, the medium TCR is marginal. you might be better off on a large - you're 2 inches taller than my friend who's on a size M with a 130mm stem.
Ditto.... he's WAY too tall for this frameJohnG

I'm 5' 8" and ride a medium with an 11cm stem..... NO way a 6' 2" guy can ride the same size frame!!!

I'm 5'11" 180cm and my medium is almost too small for me.

The had the shimmed down 1 inch TCR fork? Is it a stock bike? Tell me about this, that is strange.

By the way, in regards to the post, I am 6 feet tall and I ride a Medium with a 125 cm stem and the bike fits great.
