Hi all
Im ordering a bmc teammachine slr 01. Its my first real competitive bike. Can't decide between 47 or 51. Im 166cm tall. Im using the competitive cyclist fit calculator and then using Ridley website for stack and reach. Im border line between the two. I've heard the smaller size could prove to cause neck and shoulder stress and go for the 51 for longer term comfort.

Any advice or opinions most welcome. My head is wrecked trying to figure it out.

Thanks

I'm 170cm and ride a 52mm Specialized Allez, Small TCR, and 50mm Oltre XR4. If i had to bet, I would say you're better off with the 47.

Why don't you book an appointment with a bike fitter to give you an opinion? That way, at least the fitter will take into account your actual physical requirements.

What is your saddle height and setback on your current bike?

Thanks guys

I was booked in but the guy cancelled and I need to place the order ASAP. But will try and get an appointment again. The 47 just looks so small. Nairo Quintana’s canyon is similar to the 51 bmc.

If it's any help, here's a comparison between the 47 and 51 cm frame sizes:

Code:
>>> import bmc
>>> with canvas():
     draw_bike(bmc.teammachine[2018][47])
     draw_bike(bmc.teammachine[2018][51])

Your diagram needs more detail.

A feint gridline or a vector for stems with 1cm increment notches or whatever.
