Second WrenchScience

Wrenchscience.com is an awesome sight to find out what size you will need. You will probably need someone to help with the measurements, but two thumbs up.:D

lots of good sites

Lots of good sites....WrenchScience is one of them.

Nothing specific, but something to remember about road sizing:

It needs to be more specific than for a mt. bike. Think sitting in the saddle for many hours.
Things like torso length, arm length, leg height variances...etc...they all make a real difference.
You can ride a properly fitted road bike frame/stem length, handlebar width, etc for many hours quite comfortably. Much more so than a mt. bike. Standard road 'drop' bars give you 3 primary hand positions as well. KILLER important for extended neck and shoulder comfort.

I'd say do some research.......as a general rule, buy as small of a frame as possible, and make fine adjustments with the components. Stem length, seat height, etc.

Good luck
