Any 5ft 7" Ribble stealth owners out there?

Currently looking at new bikes and I think I'm settling on a ribble stealth (built up with 105 and fulcrum R5s).

I currently ride a 54cm Allez and looking at the ribble geometry data it looks like a 48cm frame would be best? (Its a little smaller with a shorter top tube which I don't mind as my allez is a little on the big side for me; stem flipped and at the top of the stack to reduce reach).

Oh and also I have 31" inseam.

    Thanks, I thought the 48 looked about right but thought I'd get some owners opinions, may I ask what are your overall thoughts about the bike?
  • Love it very stiff yet comfortable, accelerates brilliantly

    5ft 10 riding a 50cm,great bike for the money. I've just buit mine up with sram rival and 50mm chinese carbon clinchers in matt black to match the frame.It looks really well.My mate rode it last night he has a top end spesh tarmac, he said it was better than his tarmac.
