Hi, I'm looking at a 2012 model Genesis Cyclocross bike... They only have a 58cm left. I cannot get to the store selling it.

I'm 5'11 and a 30" inside leg. Do you think I could get away with 58cm?

    My guess would be not.

    Its not just about leg length you need to also factor in top tube length. What works and what does not depends on your proportions.

    Talk to the LBS and give them your measurements - if they are any kind of decent they will advise you.
