Steve,

Nicely thought out post, and you bring up all the relevant issues.

I'd still go for a professional fit. I was fit 12 years ago for a road bike using the Serotta system and I still use most of the same measurements.

Other than that, I'm not surprised that flipping your stem caused back pain. One thing I have done in the past 5 years is raise my bar height a bit for some relief on the back.

Good luck!

Oh, and I just picked up a 585 and let me say, what a sweet bike!
