Go get fitted at a shop to be sure, personally I don't think it would hurt to go up a size to a 52

I am 5'5" and I think the 52 fit me better than the 50. Both felt good...but in the drops the 52 gave me a little more room to spread out which I liked more....didn't matter though I ended buying a 51cm Synapse.

Sounds about right. I'm between 5'7" and 5'8" and I measured into the 53cm Synapse, 54cm CAAD9. I know the top tube lengths on the 53 Synapse and 54 CAAD9 are the same, and I BELIEVE the same is true for the 51 Synapse and 52 CAAD9 :)
