    Sizing carbon Warbird, is the 56 the right choice for me?

    Wanted to doublecheck 2016/17 Warbird sizing. Pretty sure 56cm is my size at 5'10" and 32" pant inseam, but the 55 option makes me pause. As a pavement pounder and tame singletrack bike would you say I'm definitely a 56?

    None in town to try.

    edit: Guess I should open my eyes more. The salsa site lists 173-183cm as the 56cm frame fit. I'm about 178cm so there's my answer.

    It seems that you have this sorted, but if it gives you any peace of mind, I am 5'9" with a ~31" inseam and am comfortable on a 56. The 55 is just a bit tight (but workable) on top but the seat ends up jacked way above the bars to keep my legs comfortable. I would venture to guess that the 56 will be perfect for you.
