    What size for a 2007 Azure Sport?

    I'm 5'6" with a 28.5 inseam. Is it a 15" or 17" for me? I test ride a 17" today and the fit wasn't too bad. I got about 1/2 inch clearance and I'm not sure if that's enough.

    17 all the way. The 15's TT is only 21.5 and that's too short unless you like a cruiser-style upright position. I'm five siz and ride my 17 with a 100mm stem. perfect.

    wow, that was quick to sold out 17" bikes. I've never owned IH bike before so I can't give you an exact opinion but I am 5-5" - 6" and about your inseam. also I prefer smaller frames.
    even my small size marin bike felt a little big for me though.
    I think 15" will fit you well but I don't own IH so I might be wrong.

    Just as a second to your sizing question, my wife is your height, but has 2.5-3" on you in the inseam (and therefore shorter torso), and we fit her to a 17" Azure with a 70mm stem.

    I don't recall the stock stem length on the 17", but 90mm to 105mm ought to fit you well.
