Hello! I am looking at the Flaanimal 5.0 bike. I see the recommended heights for everything but the 49cm. I am 5’5” with 30 in inseam and shorter torso and reach. I am not an aggressive rider, preferring distance to speed on gravel. I sit up more like a tourer or an endurance rider. I am older too—just shy of 50.  I am on the border between sizes and wanted to know your recommendations. Thanks in advance.

Hi Tara,

By our size chart you fit exactly in the sweet spot of the 52cm.For a more endurance / upright fit I would recommend leaving 4cm of spacers under your stem to allow for adjusting your cockpit height.

Frame size Rider height
52 cm 5’4”-5’6”
54 cm 5’6”-5’9”
56 cm 5’9”-6’0”
58 cm 6’0”-6’2”
61 cm 6’1”-6’4”
