    Just a quickie noted that in the specs it says 54 cm , thats wrong i just pasted that but it will not let me edit ,

    from halfords...Medium- bottom bracket to top tube which is equivalent to our standard 56cm frame

    Thanks,

    Might be a bit big at 56cm (I'm 5'8")
    Got excited when I saw 54cm!

    Yes it is misleading i am the same size and it caught me out ,virtual top tube is 56.
    It was the reach that is too long for me as i have a short torso ,i could spend money trying to make it fit but i have decided to put the money towards one that fits from the start (i need a 52-54 )
