    Haanjo geometry gamble: big or small?

    Hey all,
    I could use some help buying a carbon Haanjo. My numbers come down right at the midpoint between L and XL (56/59) and DB support has been less than useless- they sent me to the aluminum geometry chart, which is completely different than the carbon chart.

    At just shy of 6'2 I fit into either frame. On the 59 I would have about a quarter inch of standover and would probably fit a shorter stem. On the 56, I'm concerned that I won't be able to get far enough back behind the BB. on my 59cm old-school road bike I have the saddle slammed back past the safety lines and I'm still too far forward.

    The answer is probably "don't buy in the dead zones between sizes", but maybe this frame fits big or small? My ape index is neutral, neither overly long legs or reach. My Colorado cyclist fit numbers are below.

    Any experience based recommendations available?

    Thanks very much!!

    Iím 5-11 and had a hanjo comp aluminum in 56cm. The stand over was really quite high. Reach to bars was just about right though. The sizing is definitely wonky as far as stand over. I had a 56cm crux that was at least an inch lower, and my stuntman in 56 is much lower as well. Sold the Haanjo, not because of sizing, I had too much overlap in my fleet of bikes. Now wittled down to 2 bikes.... I did like the Haanjo, good bike and spec for the $
