    Frame sizing question S works Epic

    How do you figure out the size of a S works Epic frame. Is it from the seat post to the center of the bottom bracket or what?

    why

    do you need to determine what size to get or do you need to find out what size one is.

    The 17" you refer to is a measure of center-of-bottom-bracket to top-of-seatpost. However, the most important thing to look at when sizing is the top tube length. Check the standover height too in case you're not famililar with that type of issue for shorter riders.

    Just click at the bottom of the page on the "Geometry" link.
