    Sorry, I was confusing you with Kresdrum who said he was 5' 6".

    After reading all six pages of this thread, I feel a little embarrassed to be a member of this site. Some of you folks really need to grow up a little.

    OP.. GT Grade 53 .. I'm sorry too. I apparently confused you with Lombard who has 32" inseam and rides a size 56 frame.
    Seeing that you just now disclosed your inseam at 30"... I guess we can all agree that your frame is clearly... too small... a ...er.. The Lombard School Of Frame Fit.

Now I'm a bit shorter than the OP,....Relatively short legs (about 28" inseam) so what I was suggesting was that he look at frames the next size up from what I might ride and evaluate them for his own needs.

    You my, krisdrum donut friend, belong two sizes down.. Your GT Grade 51, that you suggested for yourself is only in your cream puff dreams.

    Trolls are delicious on the BBQ. They taste like chicken.

    Good grief! Where did you learn to write like this? Not only can't you spell, but you don't know basic 5th grade grammar. FAIL.
