    frame sizing for 187cm ridder

    Good day all,

    I had very old ~2006 Original Pinarello Paris frame which I broke.
    Size of the frame was ~58cm.

    I do not have much money checked some frames from china and found some nice frames there.

    But max size of the frame is 55cm.

    Will it fit to me im 187cm ridder?

    Thanks in advance.

    Probably not but there is more to frame sizing than the number assigned to it by the maker so it's impossible to say.

    For example, I'm 5' 8" and the frame that fits me perfectly (custom frame so right one the nose) is called a 51. Lots of people my height are perfect on a 54 as was I on a 54 that has different geometry than my 51.

    First thing you need to know... All frames are not created equal, as well as sizing.
    I'm 5'.6" and was comfortably fitted on Scott 54" where on Obrea I'm fitted to a 51".

    You best bet is reach out to MFG's and discuss your options directly

    Im thinking of taking chinarello F10 for ~400 EUR, there are all sizes will take 57.5 like my original Paris is, never tried china carbon frames, im interested are they much worse than original?

    Just that guy had chinarello f8 55 for ~320 EUR, but if it does not fit than I better pay 80 EUR extra.

    I saw some F12 going around, but its very expensive even in china ~640 eur with handlebars.

    Today number which is stated as frame size means nothing. It can mean anything and every producer has its own system of sizing.
    You should check and compare reach, stack and seat tube angle....this will give you real idea about size.
    Chainstay length, headtube angle and fork are important for riding characteristics.

    Personally, I would not touch them. These small upstart companies simply don't have the resources for the extensive engineering and testing that frames from well known companies have. It isn't like buying a cheap toy. A bike is something that can severely injure or kill you if the frame fails.

    As far as frame sizing, there are too many variables to recommend a size and it doesn't help that the same size from different brands can be quite different. In general, I'm 177cm tall and take a 56cm frame.

    Chinese frames today are much better off than compared to even 5 years ago. HongFu make very good frames now, and I'd say they're on par with all mid-level bikes from the big names like Specialized, Cdale, Cervelo. I would not hesitate to buy a HongFu frame today, at all.

    A step up from HongFu is Yoeleo.

    You need a 58 cm frame......+/- 1 cm.

    PRoto, I'm your exact height and (measured in the traditional manner assuming level top tube) ride bikes with a seat tube of 59-61cm ctc. Effective top tube of 57-59cm usually works for me, if the head tube is 17cm or greater.

    Of course your inseam, torso and arm measurements may be different.
    Your riding style may be different, your flexibility may be different.

    When looking for value in a good bicycle, buying used is generally the best - if you are patient. Provide your location and maybe Forum members in your area can point you to good bikes for sale locally.

    Good luck.

    Chinese bikes - i've never owned a bike made in China, so no help there.

    187cm is 6' 1.5". Seriously a 56? I'm 177cm and take a 56.

    "Couch" is such a perjoritive term, almost as bad as "recreational". I prefer the euphemism "endurance".
