I'm trying to confirm the right size Crosshairs to get. I'm 6'-0.5" with an 32" inseam. My current road bike which is fits good for long fitness rides and has an effective top tube length of 57.4 cm and a standover height of 31.9". I want to be a bit more upright on the crosshairs than on the road bike. After looking at the crosshairs sizing info, it looks like a 56 cm or a 58 cm might work. I'm leaning towards the 56 cm since it may be a bit easier to get on/off with work attire and more agile if I every decide to jump into a cross race. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'd compare the headtube on your road bike with the Crosshairs to make sure you have the proper saddle to handlebar drop.

If you go with the 56cm, be sure to get the steel fork with steel steerer because you will most likely need more spacers compared to your existing road bike and the 58cm Crosshairs.

My Crosshairs has very good road manners but of course does well with the rough stuff.
