I find that I am in between 2 bike sizes. A 54cm and a 56cm. I am 5'10" with longer legs and arms than normal. I have a 33" inseam. Without getting custom measurements, which size do you guys think I should get? I would then get a professional bike fit to dial-in the bike to my body.

That depends! I'm 5' 10" with 32" inseam and ride a 54CM Felt. Had I purchased a Trek, I would have had to go with a 56. The Geometry between the two models were so different, there was no way to make a blanket decision on size. Go with the one that feels most comfortable.

Good point, and it brings up another. IMO, if the OP is open to/ planning on a pro bike fit, get that accomplished before focusing on bikes and sizing. The frame size questions will be answered (in part) by using the findings from the bike fit.

Interesting. Both of my Felts rode small. Just goes to show - try before you buy.
