    how happy are you with your sizing? I'm after some advice

    hi,
    I'm on the verge of purchasing a Vaya but want to see what others think of their sizing, and just double check my size thoughts.

    I'm 5'6", with an inseam of 29". I currently have a carbon race bike with a ETT of 530mm and a 115mm stem. My thoughts are that I could get the 54cm Vaya and run it with say an 80mm stem, or get the 52cm and run it with a 120mm stem. I feel like im sort of in the middle of these two sizes.

    What do you think of you own vaya's sizing (in hindsight)? re you happy with it? what words of wisdom could you impart to me?

    cheers

    I'm 5'8" with a 28" inseam and love my 54cm Vaya Travel. The 52 has 26" wheels and is a different beast altogether. I would think a 54 would be perfect for you. I have a really long torso and run a 90cm stem but I ride mine most offroad in the hoods. You might play around with some cheap stems to get the stretch right. A lot depends on how you plan on using the bike since it's so versatile.
