Smaller bikes are more nimble, stiff, lighter, and more aero! Plus it looks better. It also looks much much much better than any Cinelli.

Couldn't have said it better myself! I think, though, that the ideal/best looking size is probably 56/57 because of the proportions of the wheels compared to the frame, etc.

Just wondering why a 54 when you tend to ride a bit bigger? I'm stuck between a 54/56 and I'm just a hair shorter than you.

Karl says:

I'd definitely take the 56 - I only ride this because i got it cheap - it doesn't really fit. 56 is on the low side for me, but i like small handy bikes so i'd go with the 56, no doubt!

are you using this as a track bike or a commuter? hows the ride compared to something with a more relaxed geo i.e. wabi?

Karl says:

I'm using it on the street and for longer road-rides. It rides super responsive and the geo is imo. very aggressive making "commuting" an unpleasant but fun experience.

Gotcha. What made you decide to get a 54 rather than a 56? I'm a tad shorter than you(w/ about 30cm standover) and cant decide which size to get

Karl says:

Sorry i don't know why i haven't seen your question - actually i like the smaller frames when riding inside the city - it feels more agile and alive... But in general i try to find something more 56-ish... This was originally bought for my father so that's why it's a tad smaller than my other bikes :)
