He said he would need to bring the stem closer so my hands would be on the hoods without feeling like I’m stretching for the hoods. I am 5’9” and an my inseam is 31”. He said a size 51 would be too small and feel like I’m scrutched up. This is my first real road bike and I would like to get the correct size. Thanks.
51! The reach difference between the 53 and 51 is 7,5mm.

Have you tried the 51cm?
