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: 172 CM

Crotch height: 81 CM

Arms length: -

Racing or amateur position: --


The correct size of the Specialized Tarmac SL7 road bike is 54, there is no doubt it is the correct size for her.

Also because size 56 is too big, while size 52 would be small even if it could be adapted with a longer stem and a less raging and more endurance riding position.

From a biomechanical point of view, the correct size is 54, then a series of external factors can also make 52 a valid choice.

That said, the correct size of the Specialized Tarmac SL7 is 54.

A nice light frame with excellent performance that will undoubtedly give you satisfaction.
