With my seat at optimal height, the top of my bars is 3/4" lower than the top of my saddle. (My stem has the highest rise I could find). This is measured using a strait edge across the top of the saddle, which is level with my top tube. In a moment of rationalized financial insanity, I was considering a Heron or a Rivendell. (maybe in my next life as a wealthy person). According to theyíre measurements, I would be riding a 59cm. So, my reasonable assumption is that I could get by on a 58" LHT. An interesting note. I just measured a new 58cm (23") Trek 520 at the LBS and my 56cm Surly is the same size!
cheap frame with every part I've ever wanted on it.
