I went through the same issues last summer on a new bike purchase.

I had the ability to test ride the different frame sizes and chose the larger size over the smaller, mainly because I'm short legged, but long bodied. I even went a bit longer in the stem than what came stock.

If you can test ride two frames and see what feels best. For me the smaller frame felt like I was riding a mtn bike instead of a roadie.
