    Fantom Cross Ti size

    I plan to order this bike. Looking for existing owners..
    I am 5'9" with a 30.25" inseam (no shoes) so I have bit longer torso than leg length
    I tested a fuji 56" cross bike (795mm standover) and I felt comfortable with it, and standover about 1/2"..
    doesn't feel as cramped as the 52", but didn't try to 54"

    Based on this,
    the Moto Fantom Cross Ti listed very similar dimensions with slightly lower standover (782mm which is good) and shorter wheel base (which should only affect handling). Do you think it's safe to order the 56" Fantom Cross Ti?

    By the way, the standover at least on the Fuji seem a bit less than what they say, because there is no way my shoe is like 1.5" thick, I should have been touching the top tube if their 795mm standover is true.

    I am 6'1" and the 56cm Fuji frame suits me well. The 58cm would also work, but I like my bikes compact, and do not look like a giant on this bike. I have looked at many BD Cross bikes and seem to have settled on a 56cm if I were to ever order one. I would think at 5'9"-ish that a 54cm or 56cm would work - it sucks being a tweener.

    Is it better to get smaller frame and longer stem or the othe way around
    Shortened stem?
