Considering Litespeed Ghisallo - Have fit question.(4 posts)

Considering Litespeed Ghisallo - Have fit question.rayclark
Aug 3, 2003 7:59 PM
I currently have a Lemond Zurich size 55. I'm 5'11 1/2. My max inseam measurement is 85 cm. I've found a decent deal on a 2003 Ghisallo and was wondering if the frame size ML would work for me.

The lemond seems to fit alright altough I do feel a little too stretched out on it. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

The ML might be Ok for you but compare the headtube lengths on the Ghisallo and your Zurich. The Litespeed HTs are rather short which might require a lot of spacers to get the bar height right. I'm 5'9 and the ML would work for me with 4cm spacers yuk!

Right now on the Zurich I have about 4 cm spacers to get the bar height right. I am assuming that since the HT is shorter on the Ghisallo I would need more spacers (which wouldn't be good). Does this mean that ML would be too small for me? Or would it fit differently because it is a compact frame. Unfortunately I can't try the bike out because it is the frame only. This is why I am asking the questions. Thank you.

Torso length is: 66.2 cm
Arm length : 65.5 cm
height : 182.2 cm
Inseam: 85 cm

Would the ML be the right size frame?

Thanks for any comments.
