First track bike sizing

Howdy!

Short femurs, long-ish torso for my height (between 5'9" and 5'10"), so I usually ride 54ish roadies with longish top tubes (my Lynskey has a 55.5cm ETT) with steep-ish seat tubes and 165 cranks (to keep my legs from overextending), and suck it up with "brushing the bits" standovers.

I did a few days with track rentals last year, and the Langster 54 cm was decent enough, but that's a pretty roadie geo (74/73) compared to legit track frames.

I've been looking at the Bianchi Super Pista, but:
  1. It comes in (nominal) 53 and 55cm sizes
  2. The geo is much steeper and track-ier:


Any idea what I should be looking at?

Total height 5'9.5"
Jeans inseam 30"
Flexibility = 48 year-old guy.
