    Flyte's online fit calculator

    Any clydes tried Flyte's online fit calculator? (http://www.flyte1.com - under the how to menu) I tried it and everything seemed to match what I would expect except for the Effective TT/Stem extension measurement. The thing says I need 800mm of Eff. TT + Stem. I admit everytime I have gotten a frame with a longer top tube I thought it fit better than what I had before, but a 680-700mm top tube? Is this possible? I'm 6'3' and have a 35.5" inseam and always thought my torso and arms were proportionate. My current frame has a 635mm top tube with a 120mm stem and I think it fits great. I'm chalking it up to misunderstanding how to take the torso and arm measurement, but I'm curious to what other clyde's have experienced with fit calculators and toptube lengths. I'm hoping it's not a case of ignorance is bliss.

    Anyone tried other online fit calculators? How did the results compare to Flyte's? What is the URL?

    Anyone on a 700mm Top Tube? How big are you? Custom frame I assume? How did you come to the conclusion that that was the right length for you?

    Do XL Fisher's have the longest top tubes of any production frames/bikes?

    Try these sites for more opinions on sizing. Getting results from a few different sites should give you a good idea of your frame size.
