KGB Psychonnecta question
« on: March 11, 2014, 12:59:27 PM »
I have a 2005 psychonnecta and just measured the top tube for no particular reason. It seems to have a top tube no longer than 18". Am I measuring wrong, or did they make frames at 18" or under? I thought they were either 18.5 or 19".

Hey Matt, I rode several of those frames and they do make them in 18". Look on the bottom bracket for top tube length.

mine says KGB 19, but no matter how I measure it, it comes out to 18. I wonder if they measured it as a straight tube before the bend was put in. I'm measuring from the inside of the head tube to the inside of the seat tube. 18 every time. At 5'5", I actually feel too cramped on this.

TT measurements (same for CS and SO) are centre to centre not inside to inside

If you hold the tape centre of the head tube and finish centre of the seat tube that's your TT measurement

Interesting... Normally the top tube is measured along the tube center to center. Maybe they measured it horizontally?
