Description

Keep that nest egg in shape.

You crave the performance of the Litespeed C1, but until Junior lands a full-ride scholarship, you won't be springing for top o' the line anything. Enter the Litespeed Archon C3 Frameset. The C3 features all the same aero-minded engineering as the C1, but in an ever-so-slightly heavier and less expensive package. Shaped tubes, a shrouded water bottle cage mount, and an infinitely adjustable aero seatpost add up to a road bike that is equally at home in your local crit or the weekly time trial.

  • BB30 bottom bracket interface provides incredible stiffness at a reduced weight over traditional bottom brackets
  • Standard external cable routing means less foul language during the build
  • Oversized head tube adds steering precision and stiffness for out-of-the-saddle sprints
  • Carbon fiber fork soaks up road vibration for a comfortable ride

I'm 5' 10'' with a slightly longer torso, so i'm a little confused with the sizing chart in what to look for? I'm usually on a 56, but feel slightly cramped. I'm on an Orbea right now. Do i need to order a ML or M? Or does any body know who carries this bike in the Sacramento, ca area so i can ride it and tell what feels right? Thanks Jeff. Looking @ buying this frame from you, but would like to know a bit more about those questions 1st.
