    Ordering a Niner RLT 4 star steel, what size

    I am about to hit go on an order for the Niner RTL 4 STAR steel. But a little surprised and confused at the sizing on their website.
    They say a 56 is good for 5'8-6'0'. And that the 59 is good for 5'11'-6'3'.

    I'm 6'0' and usually ride a 56.
    What size works for you.

    Thanks.

    5'11" riding a 56, bike fits like a glove.

    Compare the GEO to your past bikes, make sure the reach is adequate.

    Cool. Thanks. I have compared to other bikes but they all measure in slightly different ways and that makes it hard to compare.

    I'm 6'0 and went with the 56cm build. You might need a longer stem or setback seatpost to make it perfect. I decided to go with a 56cm because the standover height on the 59 didn't leave much room for error when I'm off pavement.

    Just bought a 3 star today. Tested a 53cm but ultimately a 56cm seems better. 59cm is out of the equation. My rider specs:

    6'0
    170 lbs
    32 inch inseam
