Cervelo P2SL -- your height, your frame size? Quote | Reply

What size frame are you guys riding for your height? Accordingly, how does it fit? Too stretched out? Too crunched? Do you have to turn around your seat tube and move your seat all the way forward to get it to fit? All things I'd like to hear. Thanks.

Furthermore, I'm 6'1". Opinions on frame size?

I'm 5'11" and on a 54. Fits me well and is allowing me to move into a more aggressive position than I likely could have gotten into on a 56, although the 56 would likely have worked as well.

6' 1/4" on a 56cm. Seems to fit just right, or maybe a tad long, but correct stem/bars puts my elbows where I want them. My saddle is pretty far forward, but that's to get the right hip angle (I have a decent drop).

(edit)

33-34" inseam.

I'm 5'11" and was fit on a 58cm by Mr. Demerly himself. I had the post flipped forward and the saddle a little forward of center. I don't know that height is a very good indicator for frame size. There is some correleation, but it can vary a lot.

Son is 5'11.5" an rides a 54 P2SL. The fit is IMO perfect when he rides it for triathlons with the seat nose considerably more than 5 cm ahead of the BB.

I do have to say that at this time I am a bit confused as to whether he should ride a 54 in the UCI TT position.

I'm 6'2", on a 58cm frame, seatpost flipped forward, saddle mid-point on the rails, 10cm stem (CarbonX1.5 cockpit), 13cm drop, fit feels great.

5'9" and rode a 54 cm P2K with 650c wheels. Don't know how that stakes up against the newer 700c P2SL sizes

I'll post this again, right from the Cervelo site:

1) Many people could ride two frame sizes and because riders of a certain height could ride one size or another based on other body dimensions and things like flexibility.
2) This assumes a forward position (as most triathlete and good time trialers use), a shallow position tends to lead to a smaller frame.
3) For people with a relatively long torso, they will usually ride a relatively big frame. They will need to pay extra attention to getting a stem with not too much rise and an aerobar with not to much stack height. The reverse is true for people with a relatively short torso.

Keeping that in mind, the ranges are:

48cm - 5' to 5'6"
51cm - 5"5 to 5'9
54cm - 5'8 to 5'11
56cm - 5'10 to 6'1
58cm - 6'0 to 6'4
61cm - 6'3 and up

I'm 5'11" but due to my proportions, I'm a tweener. Got three opinions on fit before my purchase: two said 56, one said 54. Got the 56 and am happy.

Be careful about that chart if you are thinking in buying a P3C to be ridden under UCI regs. You may end up looking for a (hard to find) 50 or 60 mm stem.

5' 11" on a 54 cm P2SL. But then, I'm a roadie running a rearward seatpost, nose 3cm behind the BB. Does any of this help? Are you "just curious" or actually looking to fit on a frame?

I can't say much about my having a long or short torso (I'll probably go to a bike shop in a couple days to try a 56 and 58 cervelo frame), but untill then..can you see any reason why if I get a 58 frame (I"m 6'1", so I'm on the low end of that 6-6'4 spectrum) and it was a bit too long that I couldn't just get a shorter stem? Or is there some problem with doing that I just don't know about?

I'm 5' 9.5" & ride a size 54. Seatpost is in the rearward position with saddle 2.5cm behind the BB, 90mm -17deg stem with no spacers (8mm headset cap only). A 51 was appealing with the short HT but in hindsight I made the right decision to "size up". I'll likely move forward in the offseason (begins April) by flipping the post and getting a longer, lower stem...a 51 would've been too small to achieve the position I'm ultimately seeking.

Most people 6' tall would be a 10 or 11, but you should get measured/fit for shoes :)

I am 6ft. and ride a 56 with no forward seatpost and saddle mid. I could have probably stepped down to a 54, but the price was right on the 56 and it works just fine.

I disagree. Height and frame size have an extremely strong correlation. Overall height will get you down to at least 2 frame sizes (and often 1).
From there, adjust saddle height and for and aft and put on an appropriate length stem.

5"9.5" - I ride 54 or 56 in a Cervelo (usually 56 so I don't hit knees on pads)
76.5 saddle height
52cm reach (nose of saddle to center of stem)
Drop = 6" (15cm)

I am about 6 ft as well and the price is right on the 54. My inseam is 36in or 91.4cm I have longer legs then upper body. Will this work?? Or should I stay patient.

I really don't know what to tell you. It seems to me that if you have a 36" inseam your seat would have to be pretty dang high on a 54. Sounds to me like you would have to step up one size, but I am no expert.

That's a really big bike. I didn't know they made bikes that big.

I'm 6', 33-34" inseam, and ride a 56cm P2SL (lots of drop to the bars).

Funny how these things evolve over time...now in the forward position with saddle 1.5cm in front of the BB, 115mm -17deg stem with no spacers, 76cm saddle height and 17cm drop...quite a difference to the position mentioned above 18 months ago :)
