    F5 Effective top tube?

    The specs say that the S and M frames have the same 23" toptube. I saw the frame at LBS and it looked like a lot shorter. I am 5 11 tall and I wonder if the frame is too small for me. I used to ride the M sized Intense Uzzi VPX.

    Does anyone know the REAL effective top tube of the M F5?

    The effective top tube measurement should be pretty accurate.

    Why not just measure it at the bike shop where you saw the frame to make sure?

    I measured them both side by side today and the M3 (also listed 23") had definitely longer eff. toptube... went for it this time. The F5 is pretty cool though..
