I could buy a Specy Diverge carbon comp 2019 with a good price.
I have some questions about geometry.
I'm 173 cm tall, 72.5 cm saddle height, 85mmsaddle-bar drop and 80cm saddle-bar distance on road bike.
I'm thinking about a 54 size with a 90 stem(orizontal tube is 549,too long for me).
This frame has a very high stack(592mm),so i should have only about 40 mm saddle bar drop without spacers.
Could i think to consider a 52 size with a shorter top tube and a longer stem(about 100 or 110 mm)?
I've seen some 52 Diverge but looks very small.
I'm considering other two gravel bike if this is not for me.
Thank you

If your road bike is a fairly modern one you could look up its stack and reach and compare that to the Diverge sizes.

The 99spokes site has quite a few bikes (mostly US brands). You could also compare two frames/bike sizes you're interested in and see how they compare in geometry (by numbers, and visually as a side-on frame graphic). A custom bike -also if its not listed on the site- (who's geometry numbers you enter) can also be added/compared.
