    Scalpel frame size

    Hi all!

    sorry for my english.

    Could you help me,
    I would like to buy Scalpel 2006 frame L or XL.
    I have 6,1' (187cm) and long legs. Now i have Merida XRay frame 21' and it's perfect.

    So should i choose L or XL... (in my opinion L will fit me...)

    Thanks,
    Przemek

    What's the horizontal top tube length on your Merida? That's the measure I would use to get a good fit if I couldn't actually sit on the bikes...

    Horizontal or measured along the actual tube? I'd be surprised a 6'1" rider would use a small frame. Measure it from the center axis of the steerer at the height of the top tube to the center axis of the seatpost but do so the measure is horizontal, parallel to the ground. Like this:
