16 to 17.5" is quite a spread. I'm 6'1" and ride 17.5 to 18" mtbs and 56cm road bikes, so by that reckoning you could look at 54 to 56cm road frames, but then I do tend to ride bikes a little smaller than I could.

Interesting that this frame has not sold. There have been two bikes from the same range, an R800 titanium and a R700 cyclocross, on the bay in the past fortnight, they both went for over £500 :shock:

At that kind of money I should think about selling mine :wink:

Mind you, the R800 was mint, I nearly had a pop at it, but it went for a lot more than I was expecting.
