Questions & Answers for Carrera Carrera Virago Carbon TT Road Bike 55cm

Question
Frame size and material
Hi,

Three questions:
1) Is the frame a full carbon frame or Aluminium, since at one stage the spec says Carbon and at another stage Aluminium. Please clarify.
2) What are the two frames in terms of geometry. They are described as 52cm and 55cm. What does that mean, please? Can you please give the full geometry of the frame.
3) Difficult one - I am 180cm with an 88cm inseam, which of the two size would fit me better?
Many thanks!

First off, it is a full 12k carbon frame and fork (including steerer). Geometry is below :

The 52cm has a 460mm Seat tube (centre-centre), 524mm toptube (centre-centre) a head angle of 72.5 deg and a seat angle of 76 deg.

The 55cm has a 490mm Seat tube (centre-centre), 548mm toptube (centre-centre) a head angle of 73 deg and a seat angle of 76 deg.

The named bike sizes (52 and 55cm) are measured from the centre-top of the seat tube.

Question
I am 6'4", what is the largest frame available for this bike
For my height, I believe that at least a 58cm frame would fit me and was wondering if this frame is available in a size bigger than the 55cm you have advertised.

As for the size he should ride, I would recommend he try one in store and get advice there. If pushed, at 5'10 (180cm) I would put him on the 52cm, as he has all his height in his legs. But it depends how much of an aero tuck he can ride in!!

Every bike on the website features a 'Choose the Right Size Bike' link, which advises of the correct size frames for your personal measurements. The cassette is compatible with Shimano wheels and the warranty for the frame is two years.
