That could be fun.

I think 'drop' would be a great normalizing data point for reach+saddle height....

As I expected, my fit is that of someone average and at least an inch or up to two shorter than me.

Short legs relative to height for saddle height. Limited flexibility and preference for little to no saddle to bar drop. Where I expected to be on chart.

176cm--> Saddle height: ~74.5 Reach: 51

Surprised by where my reach falls on the chart. I knew it was shorter than not, but to be that far out of the range? Huh.

My torso measures on the smaller side, but my arms are an average length as far as I can tell.

I'm pretty smack dab in the middle.
185cm, 78.5 cm seat and 59 cm reach with a standard saddle (61 cm with a Spech Power).

Ok, how far OFF are you in this table??

I created a Google spreadsheet, if anyone would like to enter their data to see how us mere mortals compare:

Looking for forum members' input (bike fit data)

Interesting. I've always felt that my reach is too short on my current bike, so I must be "big." My frame builder commented that "you're the classic long-legged, short-torso'd rider." I thought "huh?" But then I put my numbers in from my most recent fit.

Height: 186
Saddle: 80.2, which is right at the top of the range
Reach: 58.3, which is right at the bottom of the range

I took the liberty to manually enter the information for those who posted their measurements in this thread but did not enter it in the spreadsheet. If anyone has an issue with that, let me know and I will remove your information. Also, if you would like to add more data, here is the link to the spreadsheet again:

With the latest, we are up to 74 entries
