I tend to ride what I think are small frames compared to what most in C&V seem to ride. I'm 5'7 and ride a 52 or 53. It seems most people on C&V around 5'7 ride a 53-56.

Although the Schwinn I rebuilt over the winter is a 53.5 with a 58cm top tube. I thought for sure I was going to have fit issues as I like to ride a 52-54 top tube with 90mm stem usually, but with a 70mm stem and the RH randonneur bars it is an incredibly comfortable fit, even if more stretched out than usual.

My upcoming builds are all 50-52cm seat tubes.
