|I believe i need a frame with this geometry:
48cm ST Center/Top
is this too sloping?

I would actually like something for my self that has measurements of:
58.5cm - 59cm top tube
48cm seat tube
15.5cm head tube
On top of that I would like a 74 - 74.5 degree seat tube and a 73.5 degree head tube angle.
This is more on the strange side of sizing.
Your dimensions actually sound like a lot of medium sized compact geometry/sloping top tube bikes out there. For large manufacture frames look at Giant, Specialized, K2, Masi or maybe Bianchi. Higher end bikes from Merlin, Seven, etc. should be able to work for you as well.

|your frame measurements are really compact!
think i go for:
52ST Center-top, about 47 Center-center
you have to go custom, have you decided which manufacturer?
thanks for your reply
