So you are riding a small or extra small frame when you should be riding a medium. Your saddle is too far forward and your cranks are too long. Ride what you want. Just some things to think about.93360 wrote:Measurements off my bike:
Standover Height Range 31.4 - 32.1 inches [29", not really important?]
Virtual Top Tube Length 22.9 - 23.3 inches [46cm/18"...?]
Stem Length 9.6 - 11.2 cm [11cm, so about normal]
BB-Saddle Position 72.5 - 74.0cm [69cm, a bit shorter..]
Saddle-Handlebar 52.8 - 54.4 cm [47cm, so my COG is further forward on the bike to account for the afformentioned hills]
It may also be of interest that my crank arms are 180mm.
What's it all mean? Should I be sitting a lot further back and a bit higher? With my current saddle position I'm just about already standing with my legs straight up when I have my heels on the pedal and although my arms could still reach a bit longer if needed I find that it currently allows me a comfortable bent arm position when pedalling upright and also works well when I'm pedalling over the handlebars.
