I'm 174.5cm/5'8.5" 70kg btw. Inseam w/ out shoes is 78.5cm... my BB-Saddle top is 70-71cm, wondering what's yours.
@ Clear: I prefer the feel, reactivity and stiffness of smaller frames; then go for a slightly longer stem (120-130mm, nothing crazy).
I am 176.5cm (5. 9.5), 84cm inseam, top of saddle to BB just over 73.1 cm (61.5-62.8 kg), but XS fits me well .
That said, XS and S are pretty close in geometry http://www.mcipollini.com/en/biciclette/rb1000#geometrie, and I could easily ride either.
Given the large saddle to bar drop (HT 9.7cm for my XS) I am pretty stretched anyway, so a 1cm shorter TT vs. vs. the 53.5cm TT of the S works well. Currently I run a 0.5 cm spacer, but may go up to 1-1.2cm if needed. Going up one size only gets you a 3mm higher HT.
I will post pics of the final set-up as the pic shown was before cutting the steerer and a few other things, cheers

I don't think you've seen the movie i've seen then.
Great job on the bike, though. It's a dream bike for sure.

I think I might go with another Italian and get a Dogma for the second time around.
Love the RB1K, colour isn't my thing but the frame is gorgeous. So heavy but I guess that's the way it is when you have a powerful frame such as this
Pics before today's rainy ride...pretty damn happy with how well it rides...getting there...just a couple of minor tweaks on the horizon
~ 6.7kg including PC7, sensors etc
Sorry for the subpar pics
@ BennyPropel, Logos and Dogma both excellent, not regretting the extra 400g of the frameset, very reactive, stable, damps the big hits; fine but not as comfortable as my bmc slr01...
@ shlammed: I know, been there too, could have not afforded this anywhere near retail price either, lots of waiting involved
Very nice Cipollini, at 174 hight and 81 inseam i have M size.
How do you find right position for pedals(i mean end of knee straight down to pedal axle).
Maybee S would be perfect for me with 120 stem, now i have 105.
Have a nice time with your bike.
Initially I thought it was just cosmetic....but no....it is flexing big time under pedalling load.....and no, I am not a particularly heavy guy (62 kg)
(Needless to say, everything was torque-wrenched meticulously....)
I will let you know how well Cipo USA deals with this...fingers crossed...but they should warranty this
One more reason why I hate ISPs...
@ Anquetil....Sorry had missed your question, yes S should fit you well, with a slightly longer stem...
I am 176 "tall", with 84cm inseam, BB to top of the saddle just over 73.1cm, my XS fits me well with a 12 or a 13cm stem (still experimenting).
Saddle to bar drop is pretty substantial though. CHEERS
