Frame sizing

Deciding the size of the bicycle frame is the first things you will need to do in order to proceed with ordering your chinarello. Obviously if you have an existing road bike that you are happy with you have a great starting point. Just note down the key measurements. Otherwise you will need to use fitting services of one the service providers below.

Virtual top tube (TT) length is the most important number, but the best fit can be achieved by figuring out suitable reach and stack. Obviously fit can be fine tuned by changing stem length and seat post height so centimeter or two can be adjusted without affecting handling too much.

Once you have your measurements you will need to compare them to the diagrams and sizing charts provided by the manufacturer for the chosen model. Don’t blindly trust the sizing provided by the manufacturers as the geometries may or may not match that of other brands.
