I am 6'5" with a 36" pants inseam...I assume the 64cm size is the one for me? I currently ride a 61cm 2006 Lemond Alp D Huez with a 60.6cm TTL and 21cm head tube length. The 64cm Roubaix has a 61.5cm TTL and 25cm head tube length. I am currently running a 120 x 18 stem with 1.5" of spacers to get about 1" drop. Trying to minimize drop to less than an inch because I don't have the worlds best neck.....thanks!!
Looks like TTL is about 1/4" longer on Specialized, but I gain 1.6" in headtube length...which is a big plus. Guess if the 1/4" TTL affected me, I could adjust that via stem and or saddle position some...regardless, I assume I would be able to effectively eliminate almost all spacers or even have zero saddle to bar drop, correct?
Any thoughts, advise (except test riding of course) would be appreciated.
