    6'0" tall, 34" inseam. Most of my bikes are 55 cm or 56 cm with setback seatposts and 120 or 130 mm stems. I do prefer being stretched out and aero on a bike.

    I'm 6'0" and have a 34" inseam. Depending on the manufacturer, 55 cm or 56 cm works best for me. However, I have ridden a few 58 cm frames that fit me well.
