'dale Trail SL SS 29er sizing – anyone?
Both are cynic-al. For the baby blue 2012/13 – 24.5, for the black 2014 it’s 23.5. Not sure when it changed, but the one I’m looking at is 2013 black. I’ve asked the seller to measure, guess I’ll have to wait for the reply.
Unless it’s a mistake on the website because the virtual TT is listed as the same measurement.Posted 4 years agolarrydavidMember
Kryton, I’ve got a large one of these: http://www.cannondale.com/gbr/2013/bikes/mountain/hardtail-29er/f-series-29er/f29-1 (click on the geometry table – Effective TT 24.5 inches, actual is 23.5)
I’m 5ft 10.5 in bare feet. That’s an actual height on measured on proper NHS calibrated kit – for what it’s worth, most people (including myself) overestimate their height by an inch or so (Source: we were working and training with this kit on an MRC project)
According to the Competitive Cyclist web fit thing I should be on a bike with a 24″ ETT.
I agnonised between the large and the medium for a while. It seemed as though I was a bit ‘in between’ sizes. On the Medium I had a lot of seat out the frame, and although it was a 29er it felt very ‘flighty’ (sort of perched feeling) and I felt a little cramped and too upright.
I went for the large in the end – I’m right at the bottom of the height range for that size frame I imagine – still got a decent amount of post and ok standover, but I feel nicely balanced ‘between the wheels’ (much more so than on the medium, and any other bike I’ve ridden for that matter). In addition, mine came with a long 115mm stem, and I’ve not felt any need to change it – contra to what everyone else is doing!
I would guess the Large would be right for you, unless you like it be dead upright etc.Posted 4 years ago
