- Liteville 301 Sizing and Seat tube angles?
I’m looking at buying a Liteville 301. Looking at geometry the large would be the equivalent of my current medium yeti asr5. However I rang the importers who reckon the seat tube angle will make it significantly different. LV 74.5 v ASR 72.2. Anyone got experience or thought on this? Surely it makes it shorter?Posted 4 years ago
A quick bump. My head is battered. It looks like I need a large. The medium is too short a seat tube. The top tube is the correct length. The problem is that the bb is about an inch further back than I’m used to. So presumably it’s harder to get off the back of the bike? Any thoughts?Posted 4 years ago
Get a demo.
There were no Liteville dealers near me but I got the importers to send me a demo bike to my local bikeshop biketreks on both the 301 and 601 and they sorted it.
As others have said above, they do size up small. I rode a Medium which is my usual size and it was way too small.Posted 4 years ago
Have any of you noticed the bike being longer than usual when out of the saddle?
Never noticed when riding. Looking at the Liteville geo the reach is a few mm less than my trek remedy so don’t think its unusually long. The yeti doesn’t actually give a reach figure on the website unless we’re looking at different figures?Posted 4 years agohamishthecatMember
Also FWIW I’m 6′ and riding a Large Mk8 301 – the Mk8 has steeper angles than the Mk10 and 11 I believe. Spot on for me but I would say it is a tad longer in the TT than other bikes I’ve ridden. I find it a little harder to manual as a result – but I’m not particularly talented in that department so it’s not a measure of the bike.
It is undoubtedly the best bike I have owned and I do not aspire to anything else.Posted 4 years ago
