    2011 Flatline World Cup sizing

    I'm 5'6 and looking to get this frame, my gut tells me to go with size small, but searching through this forum people say that these frame "run small", if that's the case, is it a good idea to go to medium for this frame? any input is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    There's no way for me to demo them locally, unfortunately.

    Go small. I am 5'10" and a large is too big while the medium feels right. I am sure a small will fit you very well.

    I'm 5'10" also and the medium fits me perfectly. The large was a little too big for me.

    I'm 5'7", rather short legs but a very long torso. I just fitted a 2011 Flatline. Adjusting the stem outward and moving the seat back made the cockpit feel really good on a small frame. I think I could make a medium work, but the small seems to be the right choice. The guys in the shop of similar build and height agreed the small was the way to go.

    i ride a flatline 3 from 2008 size small and it feels very manageable. i don't know if the new frame redesign is any different.
