Hello. Will buy CAAD 5 bike. Probably a 2003 R800. Im male, riding a Scott AFD 209, size 58 center-center. Cannondale measures center-top. Should I go for a 60 cm CAAD? Sounds huge to me. Will have possibility to try different CAAD 5, but will have to travel in order to do so.

This is me:
length 186 cm
inseam 90 cm (approx, maybe 89)
shoulders 44 cm (will I like the stock bars?)
weight 70 kg
shoe size 43
uses Look 357 pedals
comes from a mtb background, rides 3-5 times on the road, 1-3 hours, hates a cramped cock-pit but also likes flickablity, climbing and attacking my mates.

Please help please...

Measure your current top tube length and compare that to the CAAD5 to get the size you want. If it matters any I'm 184.5/88 inseam and chose a 58cm CAAD7.
