    187 cm (6'2'')
    inseam ~93 cm (~36.5'') in normal underwear not padded cyclingshorts.
    60 cm c-t Trek 1400 frame

    The 63 cm frame would perhaps be a better fit but there was a sale and 60 was the biggest they had. The seatpost is far out although not all the way to the max line. But the reach is fine and the bar height is good to. A 63 cm frame wouldn't show as much post but then I'd probably need a 2 cm shorter stem.

    I am 5'10" male and rode a Trek 2300 63 cm frame for a little while (I got it really, really cheap and it was immaculate). I had the seat almost all the way down and the shortest stem I could get. Yes the frame was too big, but I did ride it. I just had to be careful unclipping and getting off!! My fiancee is also 5'10", but she has much much longer arms than me (by a few inches). Her legs are way, way longer than mine -- her inseam is a full 3" longer than me. Do you think she would be okay on the 63 cm 2300 frame?

    Trek measures their frames strangely. They measure to the top of the seat tube, which is two to three centimeters larger than the more usual measurement to the top or middle of the top tube. Someone who is 5'10" would typically have a 31" - 32" inseam and use a 54 - 56 cm frame--maybe a 56 - 58 cm in Trek's weird world.

    I'm 6'2". I take a 60cm in a road bike. In a TT frame, I measure by top tube; I take a 56.

    Faux pas - being on the other side of the pond (North America) I didn't realise that the picture was of a BBC tv character.

    Yeah, click on his picture and you get this wikipedia entry of the BBC character:

    I missed the joke until yesterday.
