Nomad full option !  :)

It appears as a 565L .. is it exact ?

Did you do the test posture at Sjs before the order ?

Iím not sure what the exact frame size is.... I went there and had the full measurement and test ride, and have to say it seems to fit me perfectly. Iím 5ft 8Ē if that helps. The guys at SJS were very patient with me and the whole thing was a rather nice experience.

Partial serial number under the bottom bracket will show.  ;)

Close, but my Nomad serial number starts with a C5851____ but my Nomad is a size 590M.  So, it is close, but not exact.

My Sherpa however starts with the correct size number.

Yes, I've seen a Nomad 590M frame start with "NC585N", and a Nomad 590L frame start with "N590L".

My serial number is N565MS1504 so I guess that makes it a 565.

Thorn is very unusual in one regard, they size their bikes by effective seat tube length like all other companies.  But they also size them by top tube length, usually you want a shorter top tube if you fit the bike with drop bars, longer top tube for flat bars.  The top tube sizing is usually specified as small, medium or large, or some combination.  For example my Nomad is a 590M, the M is medium top tube length.

If you can compare your frame dimensions to the catalog that was in effect when it was new, you can use a tape measure to figure it all out.

A 565M I'd say.
