This is somewhat discipline determinant, as it seems like enduros will be closer to their road bike size and sprinters will be significantly longer, but in general I think it's safe to bank on longer being better than same or shorter for reach/TT.
Thanks. So if I can straddle a 55 without falling over, I should probably go for that.
