Although every DS frame is custom to a large degree, Roland doesn’t consider himself a custom framebuilder, meaning he sticks within certain parameters, namely racing ones.

You really don’t need to know much about the complexities of frame design to be properly fitted for a DS. A seat tube length, top tube length and seat tube angle will get you going.

If you’re unsure of correct sizing Roland can either take measurements from your current favorite steed or he can extrapolate the numbers from a few key measurements like overall height and leg length.

A qualified bicycle shop can also be helpful in determining size. Just be aware that an expensive full-blown sizing is often unnecessary to be correctly fitted on a Della Santa.
