I was wondering what you guys thought of the geometry on this bike for a 5'3" woman. I currently ride a 48 cm Redline Conquest Pro with a 50 mm stem. It's way too big for me. The TT is 52.2 cm. My road bike, also a custom Dean, is 49.5 cm TT with a 90 mm stem. We left the TT on the CX bike at 50.0 cm, and I plan to ride it with an 80 mm stem. I prefer my bikes on the small side as I have no torso, and I refuse to ride 650 wheels. I've never found toe overlap to be an issue.

Any thoughts?

Got one at home to, have you seen those cool DEAN jerseys on there web site? Geo looks good, I too use the same TT on my cross bike with a 1cm shorter stem.

We were afraid a 49.5 cm tt would be a bit too short, so we went with a 50.0.

Love the jerseys!

Personal opinion sez run the two bikes' TTs the same. That way if feels very similar when riding.

That's just me tho.
