I'm 5'10" with a 32 inch inseam, and 54cm is perfect for me.
Some would argue that I need a larger bike than that because I'm quite torso-y, but I also have long thighs for my (short) leg length, so I end up sitting farther back and needing a longer stem at the same time... it's a wash, weight-distribution-wise.
So 54 ends up working really well... 55 would be about my max. :thumbsup:
Center-to-top seems to be the most popular measure these days... which is a bit annoying. Center-to-center seems a bit more consistent/accurate, but I don't want to spark some sort of fierce debate about the point.
