for the Endurace, Saying it will be more conservative means yes that the fit will be more relaxed.

Depending on what is your objectives and your "biomecanical capacity" if I could say (LBP, super stiff, etc) and if you want a uber confort fit. Yes the medium could be a nice confortably fit and you could have the potentiel to almost slam it and still be confortable. With 578mm stack it would be high, but very upright. The only problem would be the reach. 382mm with a 100mm stem can be sometimes to far for people of this high. But consider that your inseam is a bit low for your height, I don't think that the reach should be a problem to get a medium.

I'm looking to buy a Canyon Endurace and I just got a bike fit last week. My fitter mentioned i'm right between a small and medium. He said I should go with the medium to be more conservative. Does conservative mean more relaxed?

I'm 5' 9.5" (176.5 cm) with an inseam of 31" (79 cm)
not familiar with canyon geo, but you have pretty short legs for your height. if you like to ride upright and have a bunch of spacers stacked under your stem, the medium is probably fine. but I also have short legs and find that smaller frames work best because the head tube on larger bikes is just too tall to get my stem low enough, so I would definitely opt for the small. for fast group riding go small, for casual, non-aero position, go medium. you need to compare what you ride now as far as head tube height and spacers on stem to get the best answer. both sizes could potentially work, it all depends on how high you want your bars. if the stack on the M is really 578, that's way too tall for a short legged rider trying to get a good "roadie" position unless you have really short arms

hey guys I'm decided for a purchase of Pinarello Dogma F10X now I'm just not sure what size I need for my body proportions. I'm 183cm and my inseam is 86cm. For further measurements you can look in to the link. https://imgur.com/nW2VtP7 thank you in advance :)

edit: Most likely I'm gonna need size 56 but you know what, I'd like to read some comments about Pinarello sizing and your personal opinions.

Pinarello Dogma's aren't the easiest to find and fit since they have a lot of in between sizing and are not measured like most of the companies.

As for you proportions, you have short leg/average for your eight and with your measurements you can chose between a 55 and a 56. It's only gonna depend on what kind of fit and look your a looking for. If you want something a bit more sporty and agressive, go for the 55. The main difference is the 8mm stack. (2mm reach is almost nothing).

If you want to be sure to have the maximum of handlebar height because you want confort, go for the 56.

You also have to think about the seat post length. Since pinarello's are very squared traditionnal, this is the mistake most people do when choosing the size. They take the higher size witch make a ridiculous look.

this is what I think, based on my experience of pre-fitting (for size finding) and fitting pinarello's.
