new 2011 ribble sportive

edited June 2011 in Road buying advice
Hello all.

I'm considering buying a 2011 new ribble sportif. I have rang Ribble, but didn't get a satisfactory answer to my query. I need the 59cm frame as my my seat height, from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat is 853mm. I need to know whether I can achieve a 70mm drop from the top of the saddle to the top of the handle bar?

I am only interested in buying the bike if this drop can be achieved by flipping the stem and using the 30mm of spacers that come with the bike as I dont want to comprimise the ride and handling.

Can anybody that owns a 59cm new sportive help?
