I'm 6' with an 88 pbh and I'm riding a 59 Clem L. I'm the opposite of your 
wife- relative to my height, I have short legs and a long torso/arms. 

I love the way my Clem fits, but I have a really small amount of seat 
post showing (you can kind of see it here 
<https://www.instagram.com/p/BaES0xKH8pQ/?taken-by=bread_palace>, I'll try 
to take a better photo today). If I lowered my saddle any more I'd risk 
having the tip of the seatlug floating in space. I'm resigned to a 
"finger-full" of seat post on Riv's because that's what gets me the reach I 
like without a 14cm stem. You might want to figure out the saddle to bars 
distances on the 52 and 59 to make sure you can get the reach you want with 
a stem in the normal size range.
