I'd recommend going smaller, if that is the only choice. Otherwise find a frame that fits correctly, or have a custom frame made. Riding a compromise is just that, a compromise.

Sizing up will usually require a 10mm shorter stem. Many race geometry frames are designed to handle best with a 110-120mm stem. You may also need a zero offset seatpost when sizing up.

Wouldn't this depend on the size of the frame? Modern 50-52cm frames generally come standard with a 90mm stem.
