Please help a newbie size his bike!

Hello all.

Looking at getting a Cannondale CAADX 105 as a do-it-all bike (road riding, touring, gravel paths etc).

Only problem is there's no bike shop within 100 miles of me that stocks large sizes so I'll have to order without trying.

I'm 6'3'' with a 36'' inside leg. I seem to fit between a 58 and 61cm frame. All day comfort is my priority, not sure which is likely to have a more relaxed fit. I know some people say to go small on cyclocross frames, however I will not be racing it down mountains, I have a mountain bike for that!

Any opinions welcome, thanks.

I think if its not a frame your familiar with you Have to sit your ass on it so many variations and the wrong frame is just a disaster ...I know i have done it with Ebay to many times..If you cant, make sure you can return it with in a certain time frame in Europe we have distance selling rules making this a law.
