    Anyone really know the sizing the on these frames?

    Im 6 foot with a 32 inseam. I assume I need a 57 but am not sure. In Ibis I'm dead on 58.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    It looks like a 59 is too big. I ride a 56 in most bikes but their 55 sounds better. Good luck on the search.

    well, the geometry chart is quite well made. It corresponds perfectly. I think a 57 would be the ideal size for a 6-foot guy

    I suppose it depends on your crotch. If you are short legged and long torsoed, you might like a 55 with a long stem better, otherwise, go for 57. The bike in the picture in the first post has the saddle raised to pedal at a 74 cm height from the BB spindle to the top of the saddle. I'm 1,77 mt., so about one inch shorter than you. It's a 55 size.

    Yes, definitely, a 100/110 mm stem makes handling perfect
