    Help Fit Me a Windsor Fens.

    I'm 175 centimeters tall.

    My inseam is 81 centimeters.

    What other measurements help with fitting a bike?

    Also, what are the wheelset and bearings like on the Fens?

    go spend $50 bucks at your local LBS and get a fitting. Well worth the price. There's many more things to look at besides height and inseam.

    Sorry. I meant it as should I go 52 cm or 54 cm. I'm on the fence between the two sizes.

    there's no way for anyone to know without a proper fitting. Once you know your dimensions then you can look at the geometry and determine what will work best for your riding style.

    If you haven't already, use an online fit calculator to get a good idea of what size(s) will work for you. I used the one at competitivecyclist.
    I'm in the same boat. I'm riding a borrowed road bike right now and I'm really considering buying a Fens while they're on sale.
    I'm torn though cause it was really nice taking my mountain bike back to the local shop where I bought it for free maintance this weekend. I like doing my own wrenching but I'm still learning about working on bikes. They did in 5min something that would have taken me hours or research and trial and error.
