Hello,
I have a 2000 schwinn peleton road bike that I will be selling. I don't know what size frame it has. QUESTION: How do I determine what size frame it is in centimeters?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Every manufacturer measures a LITTLE differently (well, not every) but you'll get a pretty reliable # by measuring from the center of the bolt that attaches the pedal crank, straight up the seat tube, to the middle of where the top tube (that is the horizontal cross bar) intersects the seat tube. You'll hear folks talk about a bike being measured "center to center" and that's a pretty good measurement to use that folks can understand.
