    I was looking at the decathlon b'twin sport 2 road bike and was wondering if i will fit on the smallest size frame a 54cm.

    i am 13 5'8" or 5'9" need to get my height checked lol and have an inside leg of 29"

    Should do. I'm a little smaller then you(i'm a short arse) and the medium Giant fits me. Thats about a 54cm if i remember right. You might be able to go slightly larger if you wanted, which i would be tempted to. But then i could be wrong. Wait no, the next size will be too big i think.
    Best thing is to sit on it and see how stretched out or cramped you feel. Hard to do in Decathlon because you cant take it for a test ride. They probably wont mind you riding it around the shop though, they dont mind kids trying on the scuba gear and walking around in that. :ohmy:
    Thats a good deal though. Campag on a £300 bike? That int bad. Dont see the need for all those gears though. :tongue:

    Sounds about right but give it a go.

    next size up is 57cm

    i am riding a loaned bike for the first time tonight (see photo gallery)

    i think if i have measured correctly(from the centre of the crank to where the top tube joins/where the saddle post ends) and that is around 54cm and i fit fine on that
