Don't know if anyone else has been following the development of this on ST but it's now live as part of the Diamondback Andean custom build process.

You can whizz past the colour schemes and components in about 30 seconds to get to the calculator so I had a little go to see what it spat out.

I'm 188cm with inseam of 82.5cm (seat height currently 75cm)

It gives me 666/518 which is ballpark for X but a fair bit higher than I have been running (620/510)

I'd be interested to see how close it is for others if you've got a couple of minutes spare.

I'm very large. 6'5''. Put my height and inseam in and its way off.

PAD Y: 684MM
PAD X: 527MM

My X/Y from my last Retul bike fit is 740/464. Adding in my exisitng saddle height didn't improve things.

One of us has odd proportions; I'm 181cm with an inside leg of 82.5 and run 76cm seat height on my TT bike (75.5 road). Do you have a long body?

My TT bike pad XY is (leafs through note book): 635mm/470mm (pad centre). Now that according to ST is a tall/narrow position, but it doesn't look that way when I'm sat on my Trek:

I think it might be me, long body/short legs for my height.
