    What size Surly Steamroller?

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here!

    I'm going to purchase a Surly Steamroller frame set but am still a little unsure of the size I should get. I've searched the internet & found a little info, including on here but not much.

    I'm 5'9 & have an inseam of about 30 inches. I'm hoping for others with this frame or previous experience with this frame to reply. A friend has a 56 & it's too big for me. Not huge but def a little.

    I'm positive my size is either the 53 or 49. Just unsure of exactly which one to go with.

    Looking forward to your responses & suggestions.

    The 49 would most likely be too small for you. I'm 5' 7" and ride a 53.

    A fixed gear, a vintage roadie and a POS.

    I'm 5'9 with a 33' inseam and I ride a 53 Steamroller with no problems. My previous fixed gear was a 55.
    For reference, my road bike is a 54, just the top tube is longer.
    The 49 will most likely be a small fit.

    Go to your LBS; they can fit you and they can order the frame for you.
