    19.5/49.5cm? What is the true size for me?

    Hello, I am new here.

    I am trying to purchase a bike from a seller quite a distance away. I wanted him to send me some pics and descriptions of the bike before I commit to heading out there.

    It's a Trek, that's all he'll tell me.

    My main question is the frame size. On the sticker it says "19.5/49.5cm"

    Now I believe a 19" frame is good for me (5'10"), but I also believe that 49cm is way too small for me and I should be looking for a 54cm frame. How can both numbers be on there? Am I missing something? Am I confused?

    I've included some dark pics that he sent. Maybe someone can clue me in on what it may be. Sorry the pics are sideways.

    Thanks!

    I just did a conversion 19.5 inches is 49.53cm

    You should buy bikes on top tube length not seat tube length.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.
