I ride a 49 and a 51cm. No guerilla arms here...like most women--I have long legs (I'm 5'3" and leg length of 31). Both of my bikes are old steel frames. On the 51cm, the top tube was 52cm so...I use an 80 stem to make it work.
A woman I ride with, who is 5'4" rides a 50 and a 52cm.
I've used the measuring system at wrenchscience. it was worth it.
hope this helps!
