    New question here. Anyone riding a Ritchey Swiss Cross 2012/ 2013 model in size 57?

    Hi there,
    anyone riding a Ritchey Swiss Cross in size 57?
    If yes would you help me out and measure the standover height for 57er?
    Would be great to know stand over over top tube near seat tube, roughly in the middle and near steering tube. An chance to have that data available?

    In if in any case someone else would like to know or can give some advice (Ritchey_Dave you are welcome of course as well ;-) ) I am 183cm (6 foot 0 inches) tall, but have very short legs (32 inches inseam), therefore I believe the 57 would fit me quite nice...but standover is unkown.

    Anyone else riding a Swiss Cross and willing to provide feedback on the frame/ bike?
    Thanks!

    I'm 1m77 and have a 55; it fits me perfect, but it would come too short for you. My inseam is about 84 cm, you chan check the seatpost height here (saddle to BB axle: 74 cm)

    Ritchey Swisscross: opinions please....

    I believe the 57 would fit you snug

    Hi even,

    I'm 1m76, have an inseam of 84 cm and a saddle height of 75 cm (saddle top, bb center). I'd like to go for a Ritchey Swiss Cross and I am deciding on the sizes 53 or 55. Both would fit, but I can't imagine which one looks better.

    As you wrote you have a 55, could you post a picture with your saddle height? This would be really great!

    sure, here it is! Here it has a suspension post but I set it to 74 mm anyway. Now it has a rigid unit with an Adamo saddle. Pretty sure you need a 55. I'm selling mine, too bad I live in Italy and shipping costs would be in the 90 dollars range...

    Oh thanks for the picture. Yes - you are right, I need the 55... otherwise the smaller one would look like a mountainbike. You helped me very much with my decision!

    I will go for a Swiss Cross with discs anyway. I am a roadbike disc fan!

    Ciao

    great choice, even if the red one looks nicer, disc brakes stop way better

    I am going to the Castelli manufactura in march and to Sarto, too. I know... Italy is big, but if you live nearby - by any chance - we could go for a Ritchey ride ;-)
