its a 47cm. i had to special order as here is the USA that size is not normally imported.

the Sempre Pro exceeds my expectations:
1) It fits. It basically set-up the same as my old custom Steve Rex
2) Its has improved power transfer; but keep in mind that's over an S3 steel frame
3) No toe overlap. For a super small frame, toe overlap is not even close
4) It handles well. The high BB was a concern...but its actually more responsive steering without loss in stability. Nice!
4) Pretty light. The way its set-up is about 15lbs. I have a climbing set of wheels which would drop over 1/2 pound (and a training set which would add 2 pounds). I'll get actual weights when I visit my LBS next.
