Bike size!

Postby bushwalker zane » Sun Apr 13, 2014 2:19 pm

Hello all!

I'm looking at building up an old 1980's mountain bike frame into a touring machine, but I have a question on sizes. I am 192cm tall with an in seam of 93cm. I have a bike with a frame size of 58cm (BB to top of the seat tube, as well as a 58cm TT).

On some of those online frame calculators it says for my height that a 60cm frame would be best, does that extra 2cm really matter, or can I just make up for it by having a higher seat post and putting my bars forward?

Thanks and peace,
