Fit Question - How tall are you and what are your proportions? What size frame to you ride? I'm looking at a used 2006 that I am concerned might be too small. The geometry numbers seem spot on to fit me, but I cant imagine riding a 49 cm frame....I ride a 53 or 54 cm road frame with short TT. Does this bike have a lot of BB clearance or what?

5' 10", ride a 55cm in Bianchi. Usually ride a road bike with a longer tt such as 56.5-usually ~56 cm frame size. The Bianchi cross fits me great.

BB clearance seems fine. Great bikes.

My partner rides an Axis in a 49cm and it has similar geometry to a Cross Concept. She is 5ft 3in and normally rides a 49-50cm bike. I bet a 52cm would be better.

I ride a 49cm axis, and they run really long in the top tube (53cm effective). They are just oddly shaped (which works perfectly for me, since I have short legs and a long torso), they don't have a particularly high BB or anything.
