    Would you say your inseam is short relative to your overall height?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    I'd guess a 55/56cm with a short stem but the folks in the Touring forum may provide a better answer.
