View Full Version : Need help with sizing Bianchi Axis 44

10-03-2009, 09:44 AM
Does anyone ride a Bianchi Axis 44 and if so how tall are you and what is your inseam?

I am considering purchasing a 2003. I am 5"4 1/2" and my inseam is 29.
Any advice from other riders of that size?

I actually bought a 44cm Axis for my first bike...then I sold it 2 weeks later because I thought it was too small. I could not pick up/shoulder the bike normally as my arm would not fit inside the triangle. I prefer to ride more stretched out and my upgrade to a 48cm Redline was perfect. Good luck- bike shopping for us short ladies can be quite frustrating.

I am also 5'4" but I think my inseam is a bit longer.

I'm riding a 44cm Redline, and I'm 5' 2.5" with a 29 pants inseam. The reach is a bit long for me, but other than that, it's a good fit. Good luck!
