What are your measurements -- height, inseam, etc.?
I'm 5'11" and have a 30" (pants) inseam. As I mentioned, stanover height is tight, but I've grown to like it that way. I have a long torso, so I need a larger frame to get a longer top tube. That's why the 52 felt too small for me.
I feel for you, though. Fit is tough. I've gone through a period with every bike I've bought where I question whether I got the wrong size. From now on, I'll default to the larger of two choices.
