I am looking at getting my first cross bike and have heard a few different ideas on the correct size. I am 5'11" and have a 34" inseam. I ride a 18" mountain and a "large" compact road frame. The bikes I am looking at are the Redline Conquest Pro or the Fuji Cross - not sure if that matters. Suggestions?

I ride a 54cm Voodoo road bike, I used to ride a 55cm steel Bianchi. I also have a 17" Jamis MTB SS and a 16" Spicer MTB. My CX bike is a 52cm Conquest Pro. I'm 5'9" with a 32" inseam. I suspect you would ride a 54cm Conquest Pro. I could almost ride a 54cm, but the standover was a little too close for comfort and I wanted something that I could maneuver pretty well. I am not familiar with the Fuji. Good luck!

anything. Then it comes down to TT lenght and head/seat tube angles.
