Go for the IRO.

I love my Mark V, but I'm an old guy with a 62cm frame. The handlebars are lower on this bike (compared to the saddle) than my other bikes. For $399 I would buy the Mark V in a heartbeat.

Yeah, my wife is 5'7" and the 52cm is the right size. I would say someone who is 5'4" would fit the 49cm.

Yeah, I read through that thread. I looked around at a LOT of threads, some positive, mostly negative. Must of the positive posts generate accusations that the OP is a shill.
