Anyone got access to a size or geometry chart? Can't find anything in the catalogue in the archive to confirm the size of the frame I have. I'm trying to sell it on and understandably the potential buyer is wanting me to confirm the frame size.

I thought I had added Saracen to the lost.

They measure Centre Bottom bracket to Centre of the top tube for their frame size.

The wiki does need expanding, I can edit again now (any one can, I think you just need to ask?)
Even better if you find a reference, I think the Saracen took a while for me to find.

Anyway, it's the same method as Marin.

Are we absolutely sure it’s c to c?

If so this is the biggest 18” with the most enormous head tube I have ever seen! Looks more like a 20” but according to c to c it’s 18”.

I’m definitely doubting sorry

Did you follow the link? and then use the reference used to support it?

yes/no?
of not then I'll post a snippet of the bit it link to.

That is Saracen sizing, how they sold them, they will be comparable to Marin and a few others.

it will *not* be the same as Kona or Rocky Mountain describe the frame size.

So if you are used to Kona sizing, then it will seem very large for the frame size.
