    So how did you decide on the 48?

    Initially, I tested a 51 and 48. 51 Felt ok, just a little stretched out at the hood area. I was set on the 51 and would probably have to install a no offset seat post to get me closer to the hoods or a shorter stem. 48 felt a little cramped. Went home to discuss with the wife and purchase got delayed.

    When I was ready to buy I still wanted to test ride both again. 51 was in stock, but 48 was gone. So the LBS had a 48 in one of their other stores and shipped it over the next day. They adjusted the seat height and away I went on the test ride. It fit like a glove the way it was setup definitely different than the first 48 I test rode. During the new bike fit, the fitter finely tuned the seat height and lowered the stem about 15mm, checked my leg stroke and that was it. The stem is a 100mm stem. I don't know if comes stock with a 100mm stem, but either way the bike felt great. I have yet to take it out on the road it has only been on the trainer for a few rides. Hope to get a ride in this weekend if it's warm enough.

    Most likely a 90mm stem. My 51cm have a 90mm.

    My 54 came with a 90mm. Cervelo goes for the more "recreational" setup. Switched it out for a -17/110mm.

    Main reason I don't like stock bikes is that they come with parts that don't work with me. Bars, stem, saddle.
