    Look 555 Sizing

    I have the opportunity to buy a new Look 555 frameset but I am unsure about the sizing. I currently ride a 52 cm Specialized Tarmac. I'm 5'6" with a 30" inseam. The frame I was looking at 53cm. Would the 53cm be too big for me? Do Looks run big or more traditional? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    you're gonna have to either sit on one, or find the geometry charts and compare them to your own bike. Here's one for the 555 origin (doesn't paste right so you'll need to sort it out 1st line is 51, 2nd 53....)

    What model year is it? They made then from 2005 to 2008. The geometry changed in 2007. The 2005 and 2006 are the same and the 2007 and 2008 are the same.

    I suspect you'll want a 51cm instead, but a lot can depend upon your torso and arm lengths, too.

    I'm 5' 9", 31" inseam, average torso and reach, and I ride a 53cm 565 which has about the same geometry as the later 555.
