I have read everything I can regarding cross bike fit, and I still can't decide between a 57 or 59. My inseam 35" my arms are long my torso med-short and I'm 6'1/2". My road bike is Lemond Zurich 59cm and it fits great, and I've got plenty of standover(about 21/2"). I'm leaning toward the 59. What do you think?
57 for 6'2"allezdude

My inseam is 34 and the 57 Poprad fits me fine except went with a bit longer stem even though the TTs on these is usually longer then the ST. If you like to ride with a really flat back you might want the 59.

I'm 2.5" shorter than you and would ride a 57cm (and I have test ridden a Poprad in that size) Go with the 59cm.
Go with the 59bikerb

I just got a new 59cm 2004 Poprad and I am 6'2. It fits me great. Plus you have more room to shoulder the bike with the 59.
