My selection process is down to the Surly LHT, and I'm trying to decide between the 54cm and the 56cm--I'm wishing they made a 55! I'm 5.9", with a pubic bone height of around 84.5cm. I ride with my seat height around 74cm.
Riding on the hoods, I'm just a bit stretched out on the 56cm with a 90mm stem. Standover's OK.
Is there anyone out there that's been through this decision? Any opinions from other LHT riders of similar dimensions as to what you like about your ride? If you ride a 54cm, how do you like the 26" tires?
