    5'5" ... 49 cm. it's a tad too small, but i got it because of the small top tube (51). i think i have long legs and stubby arms. i need like a 50 or a 51 seat tube, but with a 50 top tube. hmm...

    5'4" 50cm to 51cm, I can fit on some 52's but am generally in danger of bonking my junk if I jump off the saddle.

    I'm 5'5" and generally anything around a 50 is good for me, give or take 1cm. I ride a 50cm IRO and it fits great.

    I'm 5'5" and I just built up a 50CM IRO Mark V.
    Its a great fit. 110 stem. (...and a great ride BTW.)

    as we say a million times on the BF, your standover height is more relevant than your height as a whole. i have short letgs.

    I'm 5'5" and ride 48-51 depending on manufacturer. The common thing among all those frames is the ~52cm top tube. Standover is less important than top tube length for a proper fit since most folks don't straddle the bike with both feet on the ground, even in emergency stops (plus you'd have shoes that add about an inch anyway).

    yea, I have more of an issue with tt then standover usually.
    I have fairly long legs compared to my arms.
