Bike Sizing Question - Jamis Sputnik

I was trying to decide between a sputnik and bareknuckle but thought there were no sputniks anywhere. I found a shop with a 50 and 55.

I am wondering if either of those will fit me.



--

21.2 - 21.4 - c - t in inches from above

22.0 - 22.1 - top tube in inches from above

20.6 (52.4 cm) - 20.8 (52.9 cm) - c - c


Sizing:
Gender M
Inseam 81 cm - 31.8 inches - standover
Trunk 71 cm - 27.9 inches
Forearm 30 cm
Arm 63 cm
Thigh 59 cm
Lower Leg 60.5 cm
Sternal Notch 141 cm
Total Body Height 174 cm

I am 5'9.

Here is the sputnik geo:




Will the 50 work or be too small? Is the 55 to big (stand over height worries me)?

thx

My inseam is about 31", my bike is 48cm and it's just fitting...not much space between the top tube and the goods.

I would put you on the 55 probably, but hard to tell for sure.
If I were you I'd go to your lbs and sit on some bikes with similar measurements and find out that way.
