    Raleigh Alley Way - anyone riding one? size advice?

    Any advice on sizing? I can't try one out before I ride it (I live in the middle of nowhere). I am 5'7" with a 32" inseam and from the specs it looks like I'd be between a S and M and was just wondering how they are running? I ride a 17.5" MTB and a 52" road bike. Thanks!

    You should use your current bikes ETT (Extended Top Tube) length when searching for a new frame, and than stand-over 2nd. This should help you narrow your choice between S and M.

    That should be effective top tube, not extended.

    The ETT is hard to compare to a mountain bike because that Raleigh Alleycat has 700c wheels and longer top tube than 26er mountain bike and drop bar road bike for the same rider.
