Lbs measured me for a Primavera and said I'm a 52s.
There is a C40 that is for sale near me that is a 53.
I am aware that these are completely different bikes but are they comparable in size?
Would the C40 work for me? I am 5'11".
I would rather upgrade now to the dream bike if it would work.

Thanks

Ok, maybe they were trying sell me on something. I'm new, I don't know.
They said for a Colnago I was a 52s(which is what the Primavera was), a Pinarello and Orbea I was a 54, and a Trek I was a 56.
Does that sound correct?
They took all kinds of measurements with protractors and riding an adjustable stationary fitting bike.
All, I know is I have always wanted a Colnago and the used C40 is available.
I don't want to get the wrong size.
Thanks for the replies

You cannot generalize by height.

Colnago measures center-to-top, so the "next size up" may be the equivalent of some other brand's "next size down."

I'm 5'9" and I ride a 50 regular, and even have been looking at 49s. There are indeed 5'5" people who ride 52s.
