    Warbird sizing?

    Headed out of town this weekend to check out a salsa warbird. None local unfortunately. He only has one. It's a size 53. Well I am 5'8" with a 30 inch inseam. 69" wingspan. Think it will fit?

    I am 5'11" and I own a 55cm and it is a tad too small for me. Hope that helps a little.

    The 53 was a perfect fit for me. Felt very comfortable. Being my first drop bar bike I am still getting used to this style of geometry. I did feel like it rode a little harsh too compared to what I have read about the bike. Going to look at something else today to compare

    The fit seems perfect, definitely less stretched out than my old Madone 56. I was able to get in a 16 mile ride on Saturday, unfortunately it was on about 3/4 pavement since we still had plenty of ice sections on our trails. I love it though, it is stiff and yet forgiving enough that I had plenty of confidence when we hit sketchy parts of the trail and cruised over 15 ft ice sections. Excited to try it out on some different terrain which now probably won't be for another month after we just got a foot of snow.
