Need to figure out size of my frame(6 posts)

I'm selling my Trek 1420 but am unsure of the frame size since it's been so many years since I bought it. How can I measure it to get the size?

Simply measure your cycling inseam and begin the fit process properly by first confirming your verticle frame size requirement. The rest of the fit will follow and fine tune over time and miles.

So, to break it down for you:

1) He owns a bike.

2) He wants to sell the bike.

3) He wants to know how to measure the size of the frame on the bike he's trying to sell.

Your post was about as helpful as a screen door on a submarine!

Get with it, will you?

You measure the seat tube from the center of the crank to the top of the top tube. Make sure you say C-T.

Also everyone is going to want to know the top tube length which is measured center of the seat tube to center of the head tube and listed as C-C.
