    Taller Fellas, saddle height, saddle to bar measurements etc??

    Just a quick one for some of the 6ft+'ers out there.
    I'm in the early stages of selling my Aeroad and am already having to field quite a number of bike fit questions. Some understandable, some not.
    So,
    Just out of interest and to help with sizing questions, do people know their measurements?

    Mine for instance are:

    Saddle Height: 80.5cm
    Tip of Saddle to Centre of Bars: 62cm
    Saddle to bar Drop: 14.5cm
    Top Tube: 592mm
    Stem:110mm

    Any of those would be handy.

    Yes but not sure how it helps you! But for the record:

    I'm 181.5 cm tall, 83.5 cm inside leg

    Saddle top to centre BB: 735 mm
    Tip of saddle to nose of hoods: 670 mm
    This requires a 100 mm stem on Thorn with Dura Ace and 110 mm on Cannondale with SRAM eTap
    I don't count saddle to centre bars as critical but its 528 mm
    Saddle to bar drop: 78 mm
    Top tube: 560 mm on Thorn; 540 mm on Cannondale
    Saddle nose behind centre BB: 48 mm (seat angle 73 degrees)
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Thanks CB.
    In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't help that much, it's as much an interest thing.
    I'm getting questions such as 'I'm 6ft 3, will it fit?', so it's good to know what dims people are actually riding. I doubt anybody who has to ask that question will actually buy it anyway.
    I think my set-up might be at the racier end of the spectrum, after a year or two off it'd be interesting to see if I could actually still ride it.

    It has been measured with a bike fit and by the heel on pedal method and is comfortable. For the record I use 172.5mm cranks and Time Expresso pedals which have a low platform.

    To the pointy bit - the furthest bit forward, I would have thought it was self explanatory.
