Looking at the geometry for a Colnago Prestige, Stack and reach has me riding their smallest frame- 46! i am 5-7 and i typically ride a road 52 on Specialized or Cannondale. I typically also ride 53.5 top tubes. The Prestige size 46 sports a 51.5 TT while the 49 has a 53.2 top tube and the 49 initially looked like my size but upon reading a review, it said to pay attention to sizing as they tend to ride big. i wold probably not hesitate in going for a 46, but that number 46 seems unnatural to me. I've never ridden anything that was "labeled" that small before. anyone here have any experience with the Prestige?

I'm ~2" taller than you and also ride 53.5cm top tubes......

Maybe drop your current frames geometry and the prestiges geometry into one of the bike geo comparison tools on the net, see how much difference there actually is.
