    Would a 54 cm 2006 caad 8 fit 179cm rider

    As the title. I am thinking of buying that frame because it's so damn light. I would use it as a single speed for cruising street and may change it to geared in the future for climbing.

    But the thing that baffles me is the very low standover height and top tube length compared to 2020 canyon Endurace cf sl disc 8.0 medium which runs a bit big cause my seatpost just protrudes a medium length from the tube. For reference I have a 83cm inseam.

    Would changing the saddle height and adapting some spacers and long stem make it ridable for a reasonably flexible front end?

    For me the weight is a must and then as long as I am not in a aero tuck while just shopping groceries I am fine.

    Based on the height and inseam you provided, no.

    54cm should fit you, but it'll be a "race fit".
