Hi,any advice on Boardman sizing or any links to previous topics on them.
I looked at the sizes on Halfords and as I am 5ft 8ins they suggest 53 or 55 ?I have previously had a Specialized in a 54 so as they don't have various models on display in the store wondering which one is best if anyone owns one,was gonna go for the specialized allez but the boardmann is cheaper and carbon fork ,thanks

They are measured differently to other brands, check the geometry. I think you'll need the smallest they have, need to compare the top tube lengths, stem etc

I AM 5 FOOT 7 " and i found the small to be spot on (53) with the stock 100 mm stem .
This is mine set up for my leg , 69 cm to BB and reach to bars of ( errrm ) 51 cm i think from saddle nose to ctr of the bar .

Hubster has a 55cm Boardman and he's 5'10" and a bit. I was looking at a 53cm and I'm 5'7"ish. I can't ride the 55cm frame as its mahoosive.
