That sounds about right but just like a MTB you really have to throw a leg over it and take it for a ride . FWIW , road bike sizing is much more critical than with a MTB , really gotta make sure you get it right .dunerinaz said:I'm thinking about getting a road bike for training and maybe commuting once in a while. How does the sizing compare in relation to a mtb? I'm only 5'8 and feel good on most 17" mtbs. What size road bike should I be looking at? Most sizing charts I've seen say around 50-52cm but I'm looking for info from people that actually ride both kinds of bikes.
