Ok How do I know what size fits me. Is there a sizing chart somewhere?

Hello inghammer,

A review of the geometry tables will be a good place to start. Typically, you would get a Crosshairs one size down from what you would ride for a road frame. For example, if a 56cm road frame fits you, then you would ride a 54cm Crosshairs.

As for which size will actually fit you? While I can offer some guidance, it will pale in comparision to a fitting from us or your dealer. Contact me off-line to discuss your specific requirements.

Best,

Hi Dave
My current road bike is a full custom spectrum, so its safe to say that I have no exact idea what size it is.

On your size charts it lists the sizes as 480, 500, 520 etc. Its that millimeters so 520 is a 52cm frame?

Thanks

Also whats the delivery time after placing an order

Howdy,

A 520 is mm, so 52cm would be correct also. As for fit, if you are happy with the cockpit (top tube/stem combo) area of your Spectrum, select a Crosshairs that gets as close to that as possible.

Hi Dave
Thans for quick response. The spectrum fits like a glove, but do I need to make any compensation from the idea that this is going to be a cross bike instead of a road bike. Don't you want to sit more upright on a cross bike?

Sorry I'm a cross newbie.

I'm getting close to placing an order here :)

No compensation is really necessary. Cockpit area is a function of torso and arm length. After that, adjustments can be made with regards to height of the bars and comfort (subjective). Some folks like them low, some high, but generally the Crosshairs geometry makes it easier to put them up.
