Any thoughts on how to properly measure a Fat Chance Yo Eddy. I have M/L and not sure how to measure the seat tube length correctly... If I measure the length of tube from center of bottom bracket to end of the seat tube I get 19 inches.. is this correct? Also, I get 23" for the entire length of the top tube measured from head tube to seat tube. Any thoughts? Thank You

Seattube: For by far most brands it is center(BB)-center(intersection seattube, toptube). Think that also applies to FAT. Some measure center-top (seattube), like Miyata.

Toptube = c-c

Thank You for sharing your expertise. Its a bit confusing because I get 19.5-in for C-C seattube length for my M/L and there is a new listing for a L Yo Eddy http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MakeTrack=true that shows smaller dimensions than my frame

I was thinking that a L frame would have a 21" seattube

Any ideas? I wonder if there is an equivalent table for Fat Chances to Bontrager''s website (see link)

I don't think you are in the wrong regarding sizing, I think the Ebay seller is mistaken.
