Fit question about S-works e-5's

Hey guys....i have searched all over (internet and BF) and i am about to pull the trigger on a race bike.

I currently ride a 54cm standard geometry fuji team issue and i am looking at a 2005 52cm S-works e-5 frame. Do you guys think this will work for me?

Right now my seat drop is about 8-9cm and i have a 100mm stem on my 54. I have pretty long legs but a short torso so i might be an inbetweener?

Any help would be great guys.

Should be ok. What the difference in top tube? I would assume you could run a longer stem and be fine. No word on the Fuji warranty?

The difference in the top tube is 1.1 cm smaller.

The fuji is back....however i am trying to ensure that i am never in a no bike situation again and would rather train on the fuji and race on a aluminum bike for crashing (not that i plan to but it happens).

i found a sweet little one up in LA i am looking at so we'll see. Gonna go test ride it today probably, i think if anything i might just need to get a 300mm seatpost vice a 250 as i am already almost at the max height.

The top tube on the S-Works is around 53.7.

How tall are you, and what's your inseam again?

You're going to need a longer stem.

Is the 32 your pants or cycling inseam?

I am thinking a 110cm stem should be fine...the 32 is pants so the length should be fine right? i guess basically i will see when i get there and ride it...just curious on your inputs as this will be just a race bike for crits/RR

If 32 is your pants length, your actual inseam may be around 34.

But yeah, give it a shot. It's a great frame.
