I tried to find some info on a rough comparison to standard sizes, but I was unsuccessful.
The sizes for the Fastbacks work out to something like S=53, M=55, L=57, XL=59. I don't really know if that'll help you or not. The Super Sport geometry is somewhat similar to the Fastbacks, the key word being somewhat.
The Super Sport top tubes measure S-52.7, M-53.5, L-55.5, XL-58. Again, I don't really know if this does you any good, so do with it what you will.
Like pat said, the size with a compact frame isn't as important as with a standard frame. You're allowed quite a bit of 'fudge room.' For what it's worth, I ride a large Fastback frame, and about a 56cm otherwise.
