Boardman road team frame size

I need help as to which size boardman to get before I order my bike.

I'm 6 foot tall and currently ride a 58 cube peloton. This seems perfect for me but was told cube frames are generally smaller in size.

The large and xlarge are 55.5 and 57.5. Do they tend to be a normal size?

I'm going into shop after work to test but would prefer advice from you lot :-)

Hi, I rode a Boardman Team Carbon for a couple of years, I'm 5' 11" and Medium was spot on for me so I would guess Large would be the most you would want to look at.

Thanks everyone. Went to shop and tried the large and xl. Large was perfect for me.

Bike is on order and I collect it Friday, hope it's worth the swap after all the problems with the cube.

Did you get the team carbon or the team?

Thanks mate, that's good to know as I wasn't sure if I'd made the right choice to return the Cube after all the problems I've had with it. Halfords setting it up is my main concern now.

Make sure you check the bike thoroughly before taking away,and tell them your going to give it a road test....
I had a BB issue after 4 miles into the first ride,turns out that the bearings were bone dry.
According to the inspection safety certificate you get with the bike the BB is supposed to be checked...:banghead:

I asked they lad in shop about any known problems and he was honest enough to say that they have had issues with the bb not being greased, so hopefully he will check it
