    HELP: Choosing frame size for Rush Carbon 4

    Hi,

    I'm looking to buy the new Rush Carbon 4, but really I'm not sure about what will be the correct size. I'm 169cm tall and don't now if a must choose Small or Medium size.

    I was looking the web site about size information but find nothing.


    Any idea?Thanks.

    thats a toughy. I'm about the same height and was also jumping back and forth between sizes. Got to demo both and ultimately liked the medium better. However, since you could go either way I would try to demo both as well before deciding.

    I completely agree with that. It all depends on how you prefer the bike to fit...I'm 6'1 which should roughly be like 180cm and I have a medium frame because I just couldn't get the large to feel right. I tried everything...from a steeper and shorter stem to shorter cranks but nothing worked. Now I run 175mm cranks, and a 120mm long and 5 degree steep stem and a medium riser bar and it fit's perfectly!!! I would go to a bike shop and have them help you out since not everybody is the same....somebody else might be my size but with a longer Torso and they might be more comfortable riding a large frame....a good bike shop will swap stems for you and stuff, until you find the size that you like the most.

    Iím 1.79 tall and drive a L ! but I want comfort as well! Had a raid of 75 km Sunday (5 hours) and had a great time!

    Maybe this helps:
    still growing?: take the M;
    if youíre all the way sport and compet, take the S;
    if you like some comfort take the M,
    but best is to take some tests drives on both bikes!

    Hi,

    Thanks to all, I was on the bike store and they told me(as I was looking for confort) that M size would be better but the problem is that they don't have any bike in that size so I can't test it before buying.

    As you said it seems that is not a correct size and it depends on how do you like to ride, so the only way to know is to test.

    I take a look at the "Cannondale Epidemic Tour 2007" and I will try to be in next event to try both sizes. Bur I must wait a month for that I don't know if I could wait...

    Thanks for your comments.
