    Prime size

    Hello everyone! special for the Prime owners. I'm looking forward to became a new owner of this beauty, but i'm wondering which one is my size. I'm 1,78 m, 5' 10", tall. I though i should go for the M (17,5") but some people told me i should go for the L (19"). What sould I do?

    What's your pedaling seat height, measured from the center of the BB to top of seat (above the center of the seat clamp)?

    If I understood your question, the mesure from de the center of the BB until de Saddle, in pedaling position, is 68,5 cm = 27" aprox.

    I'd recommend a medium then!
    I'm 175cm tall, with a pedaling seat height of 73cm. 50mm stem and 780mm bars on my Prime. So we're close in size, I think you'd find the medium perfect.

    He means like in the photo. I'd have to say if you can't test ride and have to rely on others experience, I'd also remind you to take your preference of frame size. Check the reach/stack on your current bike and think about that fits, then check the numbers for the Prime, you can quite accurately compare numbers using those two measurements and have a damn good idea what'll happen.

    ZePequeno, I'm 6'0" with a 30.5" pedaling saddle height, I'm on a medium with a 65mm stem and 750mm bars, fits perfect.

    But he's also almost as old as most of the hills he rides and hence not so flexable
