    Frame size? How to measure...

    Hi everyone...
    I have a Surly Pugsley and have decided to sell it. Before I post it I want to make sure I get my info lined up...specifically the frame size. So what is the best way to measure the frame? I have measured the top-tube (center-to-center) and come up with 23 inches. Surly's website shows a large being 22.9 while a x-large being 23.6. I hate to give bum info and what to be accurate. Is a sure fire method?

    Thanks in advance...

    Hey;

    Most frames are sized by the seat tube length, from BB center to the top of the tube. Effective TT length is... not that effective as a measurement.
    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.
