Standover and top tube measurements of a bike?
I used the bike fit calculator off of Competitive Cyclist Fit Calculator - Competitive Cyclist and got my standover height and top tube length. Now, how do I find these measurements on the bike. What I've found seems like mumbo jumbo to me. Providing sites with pics would help.
Here's an example from Giant:
I see that they don't show "H" for standover in the diagram but it's normally the height of the top tube about 12" in front of the seatpost. It would be right around where the "D" begins in the picture.
^^ That chart above should help quite a bit. Here is another at Trek Trek Bicycle
Usually if you dig into the Manufacturers site to the bike you want there will be an area for specs or geometry. Specialized doesn't have a picture of the bike, but they do have the geometry listed for each model associated to each size. Here's an example:
