Consistent Bike Fit

With so many bikes, I have a problem keeping them all fitting the same. #firstworldproblems, eh? This will also serve as a reference for the bikes I’m currently building 😉

Salsa Colossal (130mm stem)

  1. Saddle to BB: 76 cm
  2. Saddle to Bars: 56 cm
  3. Saddle to Ground: 101 cm
  4. Bars to Ground: 95 cm

Soma ES (120 mm stem)

  1. Saddle to BB: 76 cm
  2. Saddle to Bars: 57 cm
  3. Saddle to Ground: 100.5 cm
  4. Bars to Ground: 95 cm

Soma DC Ergo Trainer (120mm stem)

  1. Saddle to BB: 76 cm
  2. Saddle to Bars: 55.5 cm
  3. Saddle to Ground: 101 cm
  4. Bars to Ground: 94 cm

Soma Grand Randonneur (130mm stem)

  1. Saddle to BB: 76 cm
  2. Saddle to Bars: 56.5 cm
  3. Saddle to Ground: 101 cm
  4. Bars to Ground: 97 cm

It’s amazing what you can do with stems, isn’t it? The Colossal has a 130mm 0 deg. stem, the ES a 120mm -10 deg stem, and the DC has a 120mm 0 deg. stem, and all bikes, except the Grand Randonneur, hover within 1 cm of saddle to bar drop (which is low because I’m old and fat).
