    Just been to my local bike store interested in the Orbea Onix. I'm about six foot one and a half so assumed I would be a size 60 frame however the person in the shop suggested I go for the 57 which seems small. She said Orbea bikes have a different geometry and that would be a better fit. I really want the Orbea as due to lack of stock they're offering me an Onix bike with Orca frame for Onix price.

    Can anyone comment on Orbea sizing - does a size 57 for my size seem reasonable - thhink my inseam is 54...

    Mnay thanks

    54 what? I can't think of a unit of measure that divides a normal adult man's leg by 54.

    Some guys ride bigger than their height because of long arms and legs, but if you're of fairly normal proportions then the 57 would be your best option.

    In that case, yes, the 57 is your size.
