    5'9" is a 56 cm pacer too big?

    I know I have to go to a shop and try one but they are so hard to find built up. My fit kit numbers are not that far off w a zero setback post should work. Any thoughts?

    They ride big. I normally ride a 54/55 and had a 54 pacer. I could never get comfortable on it.

    I'm 5' 8" and ride the 56. Very comfortable for me but I have longish legs and arms.

    what stem length u ride on it? My riding buddy says I can take his and build it up with the parts from my cross bike to see if it fits.

    I ride with a 9cm stem with a fair amount of rise. I like my handlebars the same height as my seat.
