Hi all, this is what I ride at the moment in a Medium...a Ribble New Sportive which I hiope is what is linked as it won't let me upload the attachment. ... ortive.jpg

The bike I want to buy is this, the Cannondale Supersix 105 2013 with the following geometry. I kn ow from trying the 56 that the 54 suits me best but what concerns me most is the difference in the head tube. The Ribble above is 173.9 mm
and the Cannondale is 140mm. ... 2c_175.gif

Now, what I'm wondering is whether there is any other angle or dimension that mitigates or worsens this difference between the size of the two head tubes as this would appear to be a significant drop.

Many thanks.
