    Help with Size Fly Team
    I am looking at getting a new Fly team from bikesdirect and according to all my measurements At Competive cycling it recommends an Effective top tube length of 23.4 to 23.7" the 22" falls right in the middle with an ET of 23.5" but my concern is the Stand over height of 33.5" I have a 33" inseam and 6' tall. wonder how the fit is on this bike.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    No way, that is not enough standover. That's gonna smash your groin.

    That is what I was thinking too, but after reading all the info from Competitive Cyclist, it says ET is the most important measurement.

    The sizes of that bikes geometry seem strange for some reason.

    Thanks for the help!!!

    I am looking at the same thing. From what I understand the measurement is to the highest point and the tt is sloped. Not sure if that is exactly correct or not.
