I was sized at one lbs at 58, then another at 56. Ordered on line a 58 then cancelled just because i'm not sure. I'm getting such a great deal on a Motobecane immortal Force all carbon frame / ultegra package I'm willing to chance the purchase knowing I should try it first.
I've been told it is easier to tweak the smaller bike to work for me then the large one. I road a 56 & 58 at a LBS and had a hard time telling the difference. I am looking for a little more upright position - seems to me the 56 is the one.... Don't know.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Especially from other six footers.
I am 6 foot and short legged, long torsoed, I wear a 30 inseam in Levis. I ride a 56 and a 58 comfortably. I think you will be happy with either. The 56 might fit your needs of wanting to be a bit more upright, as the short top tube will force you to sit up more.

I appreciate the responce. That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm looking at two different bikes. One comes in 56 / 59 ... the other is 55 / 58. The first bike is at a LBS. The other online. May go with LBS due to service issues. Thanks again.
I have an Immortal Pro & Felt Z25.
The IP is a bit more aggressive geometry than the Felt (not as upright).
The Felt is a 58 (just the right size for me) & the IP is 62 (too big but I got it dialed in over time). I'm 6'2' 34 inseam.
I suggest an LBS the first time out……..
