I personally think you would be better off with a 57 due to your height/inseam. I'm just under 5'10" with a 1" smaller inseam and my 55cm fits perfectly...and it has similar specs to the Kilo. Since you're purposely posting in the freestyle form and not the standard fixed forum, I'm not sure if this bike is going to be used more for freestyle/tricks or for general riding. Some people prefer a slightly smaller frame and go with a longer stem/seat tube.

Have you tried this fit calculator? It's one of the more accurate online frame size calculator since it's using so many measurements.

Top tube is the most important. After you get your measurements, check out the Kilo TT geometry page and see what's closest.

bikesdirect has a sizing chart right on the Kilo TT product page. I bought a Kilo TT pro and I followed their advice

Sizing: (c-c = center to center seat tube, c-t = center to top, TT = top tube c-c)

(c-c = center to center seat tube, c-t = center to top)
44cm(c-c) = 47cm(c-t) fits most 4'11" to 5'2"
47cm(c-c) = 50cm(c-t) fits most 5'3" to 5'5"
50cm(c-c) = 53cm(c-t) fits most 5'6" to 5'8"
53cm(c-c) = 56cm(c-t) fits most 5'9" to 5'11"
55cm(c-c) = 58cm(c-t) fits most 6' to 6'2"
57cm(c-c) = 60cm(c-t) fits most 6'3" to 6'5"
60cm(c-c) = 63cm(c-t) fits most 6'6" to 6'8"
63cm(c-c) = 66cm(c-t) fits most 6'8" to 7'
(*estimated measurements of new size)

44cm (c-c) is 47cm(c-t) with TT of 503mm* and standover of 28.5 inches*
47cm (c-c) is 50cm(c-t) with TT of 513mm and standover of 29 inches
50cm (c-c) is 53cm(c-t) with TT of 523mm and standover of 30.4 inches
53cm (c-c) is 56cm(c-t) with TT of 548mm and standover of 31.5 inches
55cm (c-c) is 58cm(c-t) with TT of 560mm and standover of 32 inches
57cm (c-c) is 60cm(c-t) with TT of 575mm and standover of 33 inches
60cm (c-c) is 63cm(c-t) with TT of 606mm and standover of 34 inches
63cm (c-c) is 66cm(c-t) with TT of 630mm and standover of 35.5 inches


I'm 5'11 and I'm glad I did too because if I had disregarded their advice I would have wound up with the 57cm model and I would be too stretched out over it. As it stands right now, my seat post is a really high so I could probably have gone up to 55 and still been completely comfortable, but I'd rather be in a bike too small for me than be in a bike too large for me.

If in doubt, drop bikesdirectbikes@aol.com an E-Mail. They're pretty friendly dudes.

If you're still going to disregard their sizing advice, pay someone at your local bike shop to fit you properly because the fit calculators are complete garbage.
