Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Dodici sizing help

So i plan on buying a Dodici Veloce and according to the customer rep I need get a 49, which is there smallest size. But I find that a little hard to believe. I'm 5 foot 8 inches with an inseam of 30. I ride a 53cm Bianchi Pista and fits me perfectly. I was wondering if anyone who rides a Dodici can help me with sizing.
