Ok cheers wont the top tube be too high? Measuring from the geometry on the net it seems a lot bigger than my current bike which i think has too big a reach its a large Carrera virtuoso

Hmmm, this is why I only ever buy from a shop...

Where is the geometry on the net?

Found it. Defo a large, may be even XL!

Wiggle suggests that a Large is for someone between 5'9 to 6'. Sounds perfect.

You'll be happier with the 56 imo.
Marmite and Nutella are my friends.

Like I said on the other thread...I ride a Medium Cayo and I'm just under 5'8". I'd have thought a 56 would be ideal for you.
