Univega geometry; does this frame fit this person?(7 posts)

Univega geometry; does this frame fit this person?weiwentg

I'm doing this for a friend, and I want to make damn sure I don't screw this up.
his standover in bare feet is 31.5". torso length is 27.5". arm length is 21.5". he's got bloody long legs. the bike we're looking at is a 53cm Modo Volare. according to Pricepoint, that's a 54.1 cm TT, 74 degree seat angle. his torso length is basically the same as mine. my TT is 535mm with a 100mm stem, 90mm reach on the bars. any reason this shouldn't fit?

here's the bike:

I have a geometry chart for univega modo frames that lists a 53cm frame as having a 54.1 cm top tube, 73 degree head angle, 75.5 degree seat angle, 98.6 cm wheelbase, and a 76.8cm [30.3"] standover. The frame ought to fit him. Incidently, that's a good bike.

and also I have a used frame with Centaur BB and headset, seatpost and stem for $250. It is one year old and in near perfect condition. Just traded it out for another frame...an EPX carbon I bought for a song. But as others have said, great bike. Also have wheels and Cassette if you want.
