    6'7, but with a 34" (trouser) inseam and disproportionately long arms.

    On a 56cm (ETT of 560 and seat tube of 600mm, in theory), with a 130mm stem and what I think is a reasonable amount of saddle to bar drop.

    Love people's faces when i tell them I ride a 56. Size-wise, it's very comparable to the 61cm Tarmac I also tried out; a little less reach for the CX geo.

    I'm 6'9", riding a 63cm Bianchi Via Nirone 7 with a stem lift (raises the handlebars a few inches). I am happy with how well it fits. For a while it was looking like I would have to choke down on a smaller bike because I'm not willing to pay out of my azz for a custom frame. Ride on!

    Way outside your size range. But, I'm 6'5" and have road bikes with ETT of 585, 600 & 615mm, with stem lengths to suit of 140, 120 or 130(I have a couple I can swap around) & 110mm respectively. So, everything has an effective seatpost to tops distance of approximately 720-725mm, +/- depending on stack and realative angles. Plus a bit of variation for various bar reach and drop dimensions, as well as hood shapes.

    5'9" and 53-56cm ST depending on geometry, I tend to prefer the 56 ones... short legs, long torso, long arms. Standover is irrelevant as long as my pubic bone doesn't touch the TT.

    I'm 5'9-1/2" (177 cm) tall and ride road bikes ranging from 54 to 57.5 cm. lately! I've come to find that I like smaller bikes better.

    By the way, I agree that the Cross Check is a weird fitting frame. You're better off buying a small one than a big one.

    My PBH is 33" (84 cm). I have short legs for my height, and I'm glad, because I can ride a smaller bike than others of my height can. However, I have huge feet, and it wonder how that affects my fit and abilities.

    I don't have a lot of miles on the road bike but it's a 54cm Trek. I'm 5'8" on a tall day. Moved the seat back about as far as it would go and I still feel like I could use a bit more stretch when I'm on the hoods. Jumped on a friend's 56cm Tarmac and it felt great, until I tried to stand over it. Just a bit to tight against the jewels.
    Thinking I need longer stem.

    172 cm (5'8"), with an 80.5 cm (31.7") inseam. I have two bikes, one with 55.5 cm effective TT and a 100 mm stem, and another with 53.3 cm and 120 mm stem.

    190cm tall with gorilla arms. I ride a 20.5 inch mtb and a much modified 52cm roadie. Yes, everyone says its too small but I care not because it feels spot on with a long seat post and the correct bar setup.

    52cm roadie (ride 200km plus on this one - very comfortable) Did put a 140mm stem on it and remove all the spacers though. Makes it a sweet low position for long rides.

    5'8", 31-32" inseam. I have a 54cm Cannondale Synapse but I've been regretting not getting a 51/52. While I don't feel all that stretched out, my palms hurt from gripping the hoods because I'm putting too much weight on it. I tried adjusting the saddle but didn't have much success. I also changed from stock 100mm stem to 90mm which may have improved slightly...going to try 80mm soon. Guess I just have short arms for my height and my legs.

    Just a speck under 5 foot ten with a 33 inch inseam and my range of rideability is 52-55 cm although my favourite road frame is a 55.5 and feels like an old shoe.

    I have owned and ridden larger frames... I have an above average reach for my height and lots of flexibility in my back for an aggressive position.

    Its interesting that in every forum/face book group I see people say thats its IMPOSSIBLE to run a smaller frame and be comfortable. Yet.. I got a 52cm to work when theory says I should be running 58. Not only does it work, but I like the stiffer, smaller frame better than the 'correct' frame on my mtb. If you look at a mini velo theres no way you could make a frame the correct size given the small bike. Thus, whats wrong with a small frame and the seatpost/stem adjusted to compensate? I don't feel that that my small roadie is any less responsive than larger framed bikes I've tried. also gives me lots of saddle/bar drop which I really like. Don't get the bars level with saddle thing on any bike.

    6'3'' with road frames from 58 up to 63 depending upon the vintage frame and the purpose of the bike. The 58 borders on being too small.

    marinoni rose 001.jpgI'm 6'5'' with short torso ( a 60 cm top tube could be enough ) .
    The question must be '' How long is your inseam '' instead of '' How tall are you '' . This is my 70cm custom built Marinoni during the '80 . Click on the pic to enlarge . I've got 39 '' ( near 1meter ) inseam . I need 35.5 '' BB to top of a seat . Today with all 350-400 mm seat post avalaible , I'm riding non-custom 63 cm road frame .

    179 cm tall, 85 cm inseam, 58 cm Cross Check (58 cm top tube, c-t-c). I should probably be riding one size smaller, maybe even two sizes, but I got the frame second-hand and made it work. I wanted more of a "French Fit" position, so a bigger frame was workable.

    I'm 5'7'. All my bikes except one are 52's. I have one 54. both sizes work fine for me, but I have a bit more stand over clearance with the 52's. The 54 is a bit "tight", but definitely not a problem.

    6'5" with 37.5" inseam
    196cm with 96cm inseam (why can't you yanks just convert to the metric. Tens all around)

    I ride a
    61cm Specialized crux comp. Fits perfectly and has a lot of variation on fit. I can raise the handlebars so high it works out as a perfect touring bike and I can drop them so low it becomes an agressive racer.
    23" Specialized rockhopper pro. I could have gone with the 21" version as well but I wanted a shorter stem and a wider bar for better downhill handling.

    6'3.5" (193 cm) with a 36.5" (93 cm) inseam and a 6'7" ( 2 meter !)wingspan. Currently trying to get comfy on a 24" ST hardtail MTB with, would you believe it, a 26" (640 cm) ETT. They don't make'em like that anymore.

    I'm 6' and I currently ride a 22.5 inch Trek 330. I've raised the seatpost quite high, not quite to the max. My new build is a 58 CM low end Bianchi frame from the 80s(donated by a forum member, thanks again). I haven't picked out a stem or seatpost yet, I'm thinking I will simply measure what I have and go the next size up. I'm thinking I might need to shop around.
