Is it a 'compact' (sloping top tube) or 'conventional' (flat TT)? This can make a massive difference in frame size.
His is a full carbon thing, with sloping top tube.
My Raleigh is a 1999 model RSP in Reynolds 853 with a slightly sloping top tube. My other bike (which I've not ridden yet) is a 1980's Concorde with a straight top tube.
Neither have any more than a fistfull of seatpost showing, where as the boys Boardman has a seatpost like an mtb.
That's a cool link.
Using some quick body measurements, I am very close to my ideal competitive fit. My frames are a little short in the top tube, but saddle height and several other of the bike measurements are within a few mm of their recommended dimensions.
As for the French or Eddy fit, my bikes are way too small, but then I'm not French and I am most definitely not Eddy.
