Ultra AF Size advice needed

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I'm trying to decide on the best size for an Ultra AF 700/720 as I fall into the middle ground between small and medium.  I've had a quick go on a small and medium in store but it's difficult to tell without going out properly on the road.  The small definitely felt shorter, like I was positioned closer to the handlebars.

 

I'm around 5'9" (176cm) tall with an inside leg of 32" (81cm).  My arm span is slightly longer than my height at 5'10" (178cm).

 

Any advice would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Hi there,

I would tend to think the medium frame would be more comfortable. If you are between sizes the advice would be to go for the larger one but it is often a personal thing.


Hopefully your local store would be able to give you some more advice.

 

Also great choice on the Ultra, I love my 720 AF.

Best regards,

Other thing I should have added was if you perferred the size of the small but the reach wasn't eough, you could always put a longer stem on to increase the reach.
