    54cm - ladies size 9. No issues. Tubus Cargo rack w/ various Ortlieb panniers and a Donkey Boxx.

    CS length is the same from 50cm on up on the CC. So it's mainly just a matter of how big your feet are and the type of rack and panniers you are using.
    Safe riding,

    You'll only have problems if you have REALLY big feet and are REALLY short. Chances are you'll be fine. But don't count on carrying more than 30lbs on the rear. It's just not strong enough to carry more (EDIT: without getting wobbly).
