And he said I can easily change out the stem if the frame is right.
According to the old fashioned (LeMond) method that I have used for many years, a 58 is pretty much your sweet spot in the range of frames that can work for you. And, of course, you can get the right reach with stem length and angle. I have a 32" inseam and am 5'9". I have a 58 Masi and a 55 Guru. I've got the Masi set up nicely but the Guru is perfect. You get the idea.
