    Cross Check size verification

    I am about to order a Cross Check frame set (Dark Dirty Blue), but wanted to check the size first.

    I am 5' 10" with a 32.5" inseam. My road bike (fixed) has an ETT of 550mm and with a 100mm stem, fit is spot on. I had a Surly Steamroller a couple of years ago and at 56cm and 568mm ETT, it just felt a little too long with a 100mm stem.

    So, the Cross Check at 54cm is 560mm and 52cm is 547mm. I'm somewhat at a loss of which one to get. At first, I thought the 54, but most suggestions for a CX bike is to size down, so is 52 the likely better fit?? I thought I was pretty confident, but finding out I'm more confused than before. Thanks for any inputs.

    Update: Ordered a 54.
