    MXL sizing confusion

    Hi Can some one give some input...

    I think this is a 57cm century geometry frame

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    (Im thinking that the seller has got the top tube length ever so slightly wrong (and is 56.8cm long) As he says seat tube is 56.5 c-c and 58.5 c-t. I've automatically thought that this is a 57cm bot a 58cm ?? but am not entirely sure......

    I've only heard of the MX Leader frames being constructed with Century geometry, not Corsa. However, for that price I'd explain your concerns and ask the seller to double check the measurements.

    As it had the 150mm head tube I was convinced it must be a 57cm (c-c)

    A 56cm has a 140mm head tube what height head tube is a 58cm frame ??

    MXL sizing confusion

    Can someone confirm the head tube height on a 59cm and 60cm MX Leader please ?

    Can't be sure but I'm fairly certain the MXL I've recently been offered has custom geometry. Seat tube = 59cm C-C (60cm C-T) Top tube = 57cm C-C, Head tube = 16.8cm tall.
