First post here after long time reading!
I'm looking at a new road bike and I'm in between sizes compared to my current bikes.
Looking at reach and stack, the 2 bikes line up like this;
Size 55 - Reach 386mm/ Stack 555mm
Size 57 - 394mm/ 572mm
If I take my current Canyon Ultimate it looks like this;
Size Medium - 391mm & 567mm
Whilst I really love the Ultimate, it's as long on the reach as I would want to go, and I haven't felt the need to go lower on the stack/front end.
So my question, if I have to compromise on reach or stack on the new bike... which would be the best way to go?
I am leaning towards the Size 55 as I figure the reach is ideal and I can use some stem tricks to bring up the bars if I need to.
