Well that's my 2cents. (maybe at least 8 inches /200 mm?)
Yeah, all the calculators and formulas (I tried Lemond to Zinn and everything in between) all put me in the 61 range for sure. But like I said, any 61 I've owned I've had to get shorter reach bars and a shorter stem to be even remotely able to ride comfortably in the hoods. I'm just not very flexible. Meanwhile, I've ridden 58's a number of times (owned one for 10 years actually) and never felt cramped.

Ah, this is actually very helpful. I didn't realize that those bars had an upswing in them. I found another picture and see what you mean now. Also, were you given an ETA on yours? I haven't been able to get a solid date from anybody...
