Am new to triathlons did my first one about a week ago and I'm hooked. After some research I'm considering ordering a Motobecane Nemesis of bikesdirect.com.....I'm on a budget and after many searches for a used bike on craigslist this seems like the best option. I'm 5'9" and my inseam is 30.7 inches...seems like I have a longer torso than legs. What do you guys think about frame size...52 or 54?
Here is a link to the dimensions of the bike

I am 5'10" 32" and my 56cm Bikesdirect Windsor Knight is a little too big. You may want to get a TT bike in a slightly smaller size so you can get down lower in the front so I'd say get a 52.
