    Ask the LBS to let you test ride it with a shorter stem, perhaps.

    The steamroller has a longish top tube, so yes, try a shorter stem.

    49 would be your best fit but 53 can work it’ll be just a little snug (I have the same measurements). If you’re feeling stretched out go with a smaller stem.
    But 49cm would be your best fit, heck try one out.
