Need a new HT – Looking at 2008 Motobecanes on ebay. I don’t live anywhere near an LBS, so I’m relying on net info and your opinions. The frame sizes have me wondering. Here is what’s listed

Frame Standover Rider Height
19.00” 30.0” 5' 8" - 5' 11"
21.00” 31.0” 5' 11" - 6' 1"
23.00” 32.5” 6' 1" - 6' 4"

I’m just under 6’ 2” with an inseam about 32.5”. I’m thinking past experience and general idea is that inseam should be around 2” over the top tube. Based on all that, any suggestions on which frame size to pick?

no, get the 21" ...you will find the top tube lengths kinda short ...but to be completely sure, what moto are you looking at?

the 19 or 21 would probably fit. those motobecanes on ebay are probably sold by bikesdirect, give them a call to see what they suggest.
Agreed, 19 -21" will be just fine for you:thumbsup:

700HT

I also liked IH and Ibex, but from what I see the 700HT seems to have the most bang for the buck at the moment. After more emails and calls, I got the 21" - Guess I'll know if it is the right one soon enough.

Thanks all for the advice!
