    Vaya size 54 and 55 difference

    I just got a Vaya in 55cm for RealCyclist.com. I go about 5'9'' with about a hair less than a 31 inch inseam.. I know the Salsa fitchart says that I am at the tall end of the 55cm size, but I feel like I should have more standover room. Does a 54 feel way smaller as it's standover height is quite lower. I feel like the reach on my 55cm is fine, so should I stop obssessing? My crotch doesn't touch the toptube while standing right in front of the seat, but closer to the stem, it does. It may just be taking me some getting used to coming from a Casseroll.
    Help.

    Standover clearance is less on the Vaya than most because of the tall head tube for a more tour-friendly position. I'd say you have the right size for you - I ride a 54 and I'm a touch shorter than you, and I could have easily went with the 55 instead. I'm sure you'll just get used to it.

    The 54 has significant toe overlap too, so that's a plus for your 55.

    Thanks Boyscout,
    I'm sure your right. I am just obsessing.
    Thanks,

    I'm 5'11" with a 32 inseam and I have a 56 Vaya. I know what you're talking about but the fit is fine. as LBS said, it's just the geometry. Enjoy the bike!
