    Specialized roubaix size question

    He guys a stumbled upon a pretty good deal for a specialized roubaix expert- however I'm not sure if size will fit me its a 61cm - I'm an athletic build 6'-2" and ride a 58cm on cannondale road bike and 56cm on cross bike. What do you think? The seller says a specialized 61cm is sized for someone between 6-1 & 6-3. Thoughts?

    That 61 is likely too big for you, but you're not so far off that I would tell you not to even bother riding it.

    I am over 6'4" and the 61 Roubaix is plenty big for me. FTR, I ride a 63cm Cannondale road bike from 2004.

    Cool- thanks for the reposme - that's means the 61 will be way too big for me.

    Probably, but if it's not too much trouble, I'd say try it just in case. I work at a shop that sells Cannondale and Specialized too, and I have been surprised before.

    Also, since this is an MTB site, you might get more responses here:

    61cm Roubaix' are for riders of average proportions about 6ft3 to 6ft6. Making a bike that is too large fit is almost impossible. Making a bike that is a little small fit is easy enough.

    I am 6ft7 with a long body and ride a 62cm Trek road bike.
