I am looking at getting a 2013 Shiv TT bike in a few months and I have a general sizing question. Using the 2012 Shiv sizing charts indicate that I am in between the L and XL (Pad Stack =648, Pad Reach=509, Frame Stack= 588. Frame Reach=436 determined by a recent Retul fit)
By using the chart, my 588 frame stack is closest to the 590 value listed for the frame stack of the XL while my pad stack of 648 is closest to the 650 listed under the L size. When looking at the Reach values I get a 436 frame reach which is right in the middle of the L and XL numbers listed (425 and 445). However the pad reach that Retul gave me was 509 which is higher than the short pad chart listing of 490.
Now that I am completely confused, I am not sure what the correct size would be for me. My uneducated guess would be go with the L and build it up. I ride a 58 Tarmac if that helps at allÖ..
Thank you for your thoughts
