But it clearly isn't. Frame size is 21.5" which is less than 55cm.

This measurement relates to the length of the seat tube from bottom bracket to the top of tube, when the cross bar is horizontal. It is difficult to explain without the aide of diagrams, if you require further information, please visit your local Halfords where our store colleagues will be happy to explain.

Question
How does the gearing compare to the Subway 2?
I currently use the Subway 2 but find it lacking when it comes to top end speed. Would I find the gearing of the Gryphon more suited to road use and higher speeds for commuting?

Question
Should I go for a Carrera Gryphon Hybrid "Medium" or "Large"? My inside leg measurement is 34.5 inch which I think means I need a 20 inch frame.
I will use the bike mainly for commuting in London.

I'm a 33 inch inside leg and I've just bought a 20 inch Subway which fits me well. You'll be able to get the saddle to the correct height on either frame but the larger frame will have a longer top tube and fit you better if you are around 6ft &/or have long arms. Best advice is to go try one in store!

We would recommend you get the large model.
