Hello guys and girls,

I decided to buy a new Trek Top Fuel 2022 but I am little bit strugling with choosing the correct size. I am 173 cm tall ( 5 8") and my inseam is 82cm (2 8") so I am between sizes M and M/L.

M has with 120mm fork reach 450mm
M/L has with 130mm fork reach 460mm

Currently I am riding also Pivot Firebird 2020 in size M with 455mm reach with 45mm stem.

What would you rather choose?

Only you can decide whether you'd appreciate the extra reach or not. If it was me, I'd go longer reach and a shorter stem.

I am pretty similar sized to you - I bought a bike 22 SuperCaliber in M. It’s been a great bike for me, I did put wider bars on to create some more room. I did a 5 day stage race on it with more hours than I care to admit, the M was plenty comfy, but I wouldn’t mind just a bit more room so the M/L could be fine if that’s what you find.

Doesn’t mean the Top Fuel has the same geometry- but they are prolly pretty close!

You’ve probably decided. But in case not or if anyone else comes across this thread…

I’m 174cm and have a M with 120mm fork. I have the stem slammed to max the reach with 7.5mm more bar rise than stock. For me the M/L with 130mm at 160 reach would be perfect.

The stack is quite short - it works for me. But if you’re going to add spacers I’d recommend the M/L.
