    Madone sizing

    Hi,

    I am considering buying a Madone SRL (H1.5 fit).

    I have taken it for granted that I should go for a frame size 56. However, the other day when I tried the bike, it felt somehow big to manouvre.

    My height is 181 cm.

    Now I am considering a size 54. Anyone with same height riding a Madone size 54?

    The saddle height on my other bikes (Trek Koppenberg size 56 and Cervelo california size 54) is 76 cm. I do not use spacers under the stem on these bikes.

    Iím 187 cm tall and have a 58cm frame with a 130mm stem.

    On a rough assumption that we are approximately similar/average proportions. Then Iíd expect your reach would be about 3 cm less. Thatís a 56 with a 110mm stem.

    Iíd still recommend a Precision Fit bike fit. The software used can give you a much better idea.

    SCBCS, are you saying you bought a bike already and want to get a different one? I'm your size and on the previous version, ride a 54cm or 56. New one I haven't tried.

    I ended up going for a size 56 and it fits me perfectly.

    Fantastic bike.

    Thanks for your input.

    The software doesn't give you the fit, the fitter still does that.
