    Which is the smaller Medium Frame?

    Please help. In a hurry to decide.

    Which would be the smaller Medium. frame as far as fit.

    Ridley Fenix

    Or the Time Fluidity. It looks like the Time would be?

    Can't even read the bottom one. Neither have reach/stack measurements, and I'm not gonna do the math. Just look at the numbers for effective top tube and seat/headtube angles.

    Just looked at the Time site, and if you're defining 'smaller' as 'shorter top tube' the Time is the smaller frame in that size. Just look at the numbers...it's not that hard.

    These are the two most important measurements you need to pay attention to. Neither of your choices has these measurements.

    FWIW, being in a hurry to buy a bike seems like it will not end well. This sounds like a time to take a pause, but that's just me.

    the Time is smaller. BUT the size medium means nothing. the measurements and your body proportions do.

    Thanks guys. I know "sizing cues" from the manufacture doesn't mean squat compared to the numbers, but both bike are Med.
    I was posting this for a friend of mine who has the Ridley and found an amazing deal on the Time. The Ridley is just a bit too big for him so I figured that the shorter measurements on the Time would suit him better. He bought it and it does.

    Thanks for the comments.
