|Hey there everyone, this a great site for a great sport, a while ago I managed to get a great deal on my first Road bike and got a Trek 2300 composite frame with the stock fork, not to high end components anyways the thing is that the frame is 60cm. and I am 1.81m (about 6'00'') and weight about 210-220 lbs. and feel the frame a little bit too big and I'm thinking about getting another frame. What should be the proper sizing in cm. for my specs.? Thanks to all for your time.

|Click the "Discussions" link above, then look to the left where you will see the topic: Idiots Guide to Bike Fit II
Please beware that these methods will put you at a variety of different sizes. Be aware that you will likely need to look at a lot more than the "size" of a frame, albiet most frames fit a generic category of riders with similar dimensions. Fit and such is one of the most common topics so I would also look into the archives as these topics have been addressed once or twice...
