Hi All

I need your help once again.

I am thinking about buying a Merlin XLM frame - if I can find one

But I am not so into MTB since I do 99,99 % of my training on the road.

I would like to know what frame size that would the best for me. I know that some of the answers would be try the frame and then decide. But that is not always easy.

My info are as follow:

Height 1819 mm

Inseam 885 mm

Arm L/R 720 mm

Torso 587 mm

I can see that there are some medium (M) and large (L) frames out there, and they have a seat tube length of 16,25" and 17,5".
But how are they measured?

Do they measure from:

1. center bottom bracket shell to the end of the seat tube

or

2. from center of the bottom bracket shell to the intersection of the top of the top tube and the centerline of the seat tube.

I know that Litespeed did measure from the center of the bottom bracket shell to the intersection of the top of the top tube and the centerline of the seat tube, and Litespeed and Merlin was under the same wings, right??

Looking forward to some answers - just can't wait

Ciao
