I don't really have much clue on all the other measurements and I know fit is personal but I might can do a trade on this bike I didn't think I could afford. My original intention was to try to get on a LHT before ordering a certain size but this deal just sort of came up so I need some fit advice in the worst way and fairly quickly.
Same height and same inseam. (I have to buy 32" pants because I'll walk on the ends of 34" pants.) I have a 60cm LHT. I like my touring bikes on the slightly larger side. It's possible that you will find the 60cm too large. I definitely had to replace the monster stem with a shorter one.
