In a traditional road frame, 55cm C-T is my size. (Bianchi and both Capos.) I get a full, non-stretched leg extension with my heels on the pedals, I can just touch the handlebar with my elbow against the nose of the saddle, and I am just about at knee-over-pedal-spindle. Works for me.

The UO-8 is 53.5cm C-T, but with a disproportionately long top tube, so that also works.
