    Help sizing a Lynskey Procross

    I'm thinking of spending the big bucks & buying a Lynskey Procross... trouble is I'm having a hard time picking the right size!

    I'm 5'5" & currently ride a 2007 Trek XO 1 (that fits very well). I'm unable (after lots of hard searching) to find the exact frame specs for my current bike... but I did some of the measurements myself:
    -TT effective: 52.5
    -TT Actual: 51
    -Standover: 78
    -Head Tube: 10.5

    I'm either an XS or S Lynskey, measurements found here: http://www.lynskeyperformance.com/a/...s/procross.php

    I have talked to the Lynskey folks & they haven't really made any recommendations for me. I'm leaning towards the XS b/c the TT Effective is basically identical to what I own now. However, as this is such a major purchase for me... I want to get it right.

    Any help or advice?

    With most companies, I fit a 50 - 51cm bike (52 is generally too big and 49 can be made to work with modifications). I know all companies measure differently, and all frames vary greatly... but I don't know enough to figure out exactly how this frame will be once built

    If I couldn't get an answer from Lynskey. I wouldn't buy one. Ultimately the size frame you choose is your decision. If you take someones advice and later change your mind don't blame them. It was your choice.
