I would go smaller if running drops. I was in between sizes in 2009, got
the larger frame (60cm) and wished I'd gotten the smaller (56) because the
top tube was so long. Even with a short 7 cm stem, it was too long for me,
although standover was adequate. 7 years later, I got a smaller Sam (58cm)
and it's perfect. Mind you, this is for a rider who rides with drop bars
below saddle level. i still prefer the short stem. My legs are long
relative to my torso.
