which Bareknuckle geometry from an IRO Mark V (SIZING)

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

which Bareknuckle geometry from an IRO Mark V (SIZING)

hi,
looking to get a bareknuckle, but i am not sure about sizing. i currently ride an IRO Mark V 59cm with this sizing (and it fits fine):
SIZE S/T T/T H/T Angle S/T Angle H/T Length
59 550 570 74 73 150

the bareknuckle geometry looks like:
SIZE S/T T/T H/T Angle S/T Angle H/T Length
56 560 565 75 73.5 167
58 580 575 75 73.5 188
60 600 585 75 73 208

not really sure what to go with. any advice would be great.
thanks

The 56 look to be the closest.

Go with the 56. Bareknuckles run big. I ride a 54 steamroller, and ended up with a 50 bareknuckle.
