    I'm 5'9 and use the niner emd9 in small. the small may be okay also for you and if its too big, they have an XS size. good luck on the build!!

    New selected bike is available in 17", 19" and 21,5" (inches) sizes! I can't try it, because will buy from online shop! If I choose wrong size this means one more month without ride in mountains!

    that's easy. You need a bike with a 525mm seat tube, a 635mm top tube, and 190mm cranks.





    ...sorry, couldn't resist


    I guess you're somewhere between a small and a medium frame for most brands?

    So, 5'7" tall with a 28.7" inseam. My best guess would be a SM, but not everyone's SM is the same, so it's best to go by the ETT of a bike for sizing, but I'd also take your short inseam into consideration and look at standover a bit as well. As for an online fit calculator, try Competitive Cyclists one.

    Small will probably do the trick - I'm just about your size and small is the best fit for me with most bikes.

    I think something is getting lost in the metric to inches conversion here. A 54 cm road frame is most definitely NOT a 21" size. My 58 cm road frame is more comparable to a 19" size.

    If you ride a 54 cm road frame, that should put you in the 17" size range I think.

    Hmmmm... That could be. I certainly hope it is, anyway.

    you'll be a small in most, but a medium in others. it just depends on the bike and your preference.

    You will be the same size ETT as whatever 26" bike you fit.

    Agree with above ETT is king then look at SO height. You should be able to find a 29er HT, I'm only 5'5 and ride one as my main bike.
