I made a discovery that my 56cm frame (a bit sloped) actually has ETT of 575mm. I wonder if it's a bit long for me. I run it with a 100mm stem and feel quite fine. When I first sat on the bike in the shop, it felt just right like my XC hardtail and I bought it without thinking how long it is.

I'm curious what ETT and what stem is "normal" or recommended for 178-181cm/5'10"-5'11".

I'm 5'11" and all my road bikes have a 57cm ETT and I use a 110mm stem. Don't know if it is "normal", but this works for me. Your setup would be 5mm shorter if you are only considering ETT and Stem length.

I'm 5' 11" and I ride a 56 and run a 120mm stem. Depends on your proportions. Were you fitted for the frame?
