Sounds like the top end of my sizing - possibly! I'm 5'8'' on a very good day. Probably nearer 5'7 than 5'8 but I do prefer longer top tubes and opt for a medium in an mtb to get that.

You should manage tho that stem looks like 130 mm + !! prob a 90 would do, my 'nato is 55 and swapped a 110 stem for an 80 and now feels a tad short...

If it's any help with sizing questions, I'm 5'10", but an odd shape with shortish legs and long torso, hence my preference for smallish bikes (mostly 54 to 55cm) but with long stems. The stem currently on this bike is 130mm, spot on bikenut2010.

After owning this bike for nearly 20 years I'm probably attaching too much emotion to it :-( , but I'm not in a rush to sell, so I'll wait and see what sunnier days might bring before cutting the price or opening to offers.

I personally feel that it is, its a quality frame with quality parts. Good luck with the sale!
