I was wondering what people do in this instance, im 5' 7.5" - 5' 8" with 33 inseam, so with that per my fits and some online calculators, i need to be around 74cm saddle hight with around 6cm setback give or take, that gives you a pretty large saddle to bar drop, even with my Cervelo RS, do you guys ride 56 bikes or I just have to work on my self for better flexibility, im not totally useless, but could be better, please advise

Wouldn't it make sense to ask this in your other fit thread?

I agree with 5 8 5, you already have this going on in another thread. That being said, I have ridden and raced a good number of different sizes, from 52 up to 56. The 56 I had was a Jamis, so it is close to Cervelos old geometry of parallel 73 degree seat tubes. I did well on that bike, but I had areas where it did not work well for me, in particular standing to climb. I never felt like I could get down into the bike to pull on the bars.

I am now on a 52 Cannondale. If you check your other thread, I posted some links to pictures of me on it in a race situation.
