    RLT STEEL Sizing

    I'm thinking about buying a RLT steel frame or bike in the future, Close to 6'3" I'm leaning more to the 59 size than the 61. The 61 just seems to big for me. I'm not able to ride either so Checking the geo charts the 59 looks close. Any riders out there in the same size?

    No direct experience but I have had my eyes on that bike for a while now (just waiting for a grander deal to pop up). I am 62 with long legs and plan on going 59. That 62 is a big bike.

    I typically ride 60-61cm CX frames. I would need a 62cm RLT, they fit a bit small actually.

    I swapped bikes with a buddy, I ride an All-City Nature Boy 853 61cm, he was on a 62cm RLT Aluminum that was 2 years old. It felt virtually the same, I'm afraid the 59 would be too small for me.

    I have pretty normal proportions and a 34.5-35" inseam. Everyone is different though, hope that helps.

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Thanks, I always try to go on the bigger bike if I'm between sizes. Going down a size has never worked that well for me. I hope to get more info on the frames.

    I demoed a 56cm and it fit perfectly. I'm 6' with long arms and a 32" inseam. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the input. Just found a 59 and it fits great for me at 6'2 1/2 inches. I do think the 62 would be too big for me.
