Shorter crank arms at some point would probably help my knees, too.

Do yourself a favour and get a proper fitting done, it'll take out a lot of guess work and save you money down the road..
Otherwise, the bike looks nice..

the smallest three sl3s were like all the same reach. Only thing that changed across the 49 52 and 54 was stack.

I think I'm partially at fault. Pretty sure I went in asking for a 54. My first steel road bike a couple years back was a 54 and I came to the conclusion of getting that size based off of a height chart, but this was back when I knew nothing of cycling. Still learning, and now that I'm riding more I'm starting to understand what I need.

Yeah, I'm just going to go ahead and schedule a Body Geometry fit this week. Too bad the LBS I bought it from doesn't do them.
