I recently bought a cross check complete size 54cm. I am wondering now if I should have purchased a 56. With the stock stem(105mm) I can see the front hub over the bars. I am now running a 120mm stem and my view of the hub is obscructed by the bars. Standover clearance is about an inch and a half. The only problem I have now is that my neck feels a little uncomfortable when riding on the hoods, looking forward. I am 5ft 9in with a 32 inseam.

thanks for any help

I've never rode the CrossCheck nor any road type bike prior to buying and I'm still wondering about the fit. I'm 5'10 - 32" , choose the 54 w/Thomson Set back post and 100mmx40rise w/Moustache bars. Seems to be spot on even al little stretched out and yes I can see the front hub over the bars if I'm all the way in the drops.
Btw, I love the ride!
I'm thinking about trying the Midge bars w/100x5 stem.
The steel is comfy :thumbsup:

thanks for the feedback.. after a week of breaking in, the fit of the 54 is starting to feel good.
