Well tbh the question should read how do GT measure a GT frame.

Just won a All Terra Karakoram and was wondering if its the large or not

The seller had it listed as 550mm which isnt helpful as GT list the bike sizes in inches and list the larger sizes as 20" and 22"
Now we all know the tendency for non cyclists to measure to the very top of the seat tube instead of C-C Standover height.
So do GT list the 22" as the Standover height ie C-C or do they measure right to the top of the seat tube

Thank you :D

Centre to centre on GT's andy
Top tube length is more of an indication of size tho
Go for a 20 plus for your height

The way all frames for me go is it must be a XL size and in this case its for a commuter so i dont want anything thats too small.
Im guessing from the 550mm he's measured it at,which is about 21 3/4" means he's measured to the top and not the center.

Pending me measuring it Anyone want a medium GT ? :lol:
