What's your general size?
I've had a sit on 53cm and 56cm but don't really know. To be honest each shop which had them in were saying it would be fine. Just need a bit of guidance.
I'm 5ft8

53cm reach seemed a bit more control as shorter
56cm seemed fine but not sure if stretched
An inbetween would be nice lol

I really need to find a shop which has both in stock and being able to test side by side
Wanted: Cube Streamer/Agree GTC Compact / Pro/ Race : 53cm

    I've got an Agree GTC Pro in 53cm and I'm 5'7". I had a bike fit earlier in the year and the only thing we couldn't get setup ideally was the knee-cap over the pedal axle with the pedals level, everything else was fine. I think if I'd gone for the 56 then the knee/pedal would have been easier to align but something else would probably have to give. It all depends on the ratio of all your other measurements, but nothing short of a bespoke bike is likely to be spot on all round. Personally, I prefer to go for the smaller option if I'm between sizes.

    Great bike though. Would buy another one in a heartbeat.

    Always go for the slightly smaller frame as you can do a lot with your reach with stems etc..

    I am not sure if this I any help but I had a 56cm peloton and I am 5'10. I always felt to stretched out no matter what I did to the set up. In hindsight I needed a frame around 52cm I would say.

    No thats interesting. I'm not particular long in legs or upper body at 5ft8, so smaller than you so maybe the stretched on a 56cm too
