    height is only a smaller factor in frame sizing.

    I agree that height isn't that important in & of itself.

    I'm 5'10.5" I ride 54-56cm, depending on top tube length. I have long legs, which should require a larger frame, but my upper body is short, so I end up with a shorter stem and a lot of seatpost showing. Someday I'll get a custom frame...

    550-580mm

    dont use the how tall are you and what size is your bike method for sizing a frame unless you are a gambler
    not a 2ksuck'r

    here are a few links about bike fitting/sizing

    http://www.cyclemetrics.com/Pages/Fi..._fit_links.htm

    http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/fitting.htm

    http://www.coloradocyclist.com/bikefit/

    not comprehensive by any means mind you

    best bet is to talk to a pro if you can

    one that can be trusted and is not just trying to sell you the bike that is in stock
    not a 2ksuck'r

    I feel short coming in at 5'9" and some change. I ride a 55cm soma, but those run slightly small so it fits perfectly.

    My Raleigh has a TT of 55.8 but it's a 30" standover,

    My custom has an effective TT of 53.5

    and my IRO is a 54TT.

    And I am 5'6" - I think.
    Because, yeah... uh huh! Umm, yeah!
