Hi Luca,

I would gladly receive indications of the right size of the new bike I would like to buy.


Bike model: Specialized Tarmac SL7

Height: 163 CM

Crotch height: 64 CM

Arms length: -

Racing or amateur position: --


The correct size of the Specialized Tarmac SL7 racing bike is 49, which is the size that comes closest to its morphology.

Actually size 49 would be just small, but the next 52 is too big.

You would need a horizontal tube of about 515/520 millimeters.

Now size 49 has a 509mm horizontal and 52 a 530mm.

Now it's up to you to decide which of the two to adapt or switch to another frame and another bike brand that offers a racing bike frame to the extent you need.

Still a great racing bike.
