Amazing deal if you are looking for a 50 CM road bike.

This is a FULL carbon bike with Shimano 105 components. I would have bit if they had a 58 - 60 CM version.

Keep in mind this is 10-speed 105, so your upgrade path is limited, to go to 11-speed, you would probably need new wheels. 11-speed 105 is significant upgrade in terms of shift feel.

I am 5ft 7, and 32 seam. Would this be a right size? I currently ride 52in non-branded bike, which I feel is a bit bigger...

I will ultimately go buy this at the store to use my California bike coupons (and do fitting). But looking for advice here on whether its worthwhile going to the store itself.

TIA

It's probably not in store and a 50 cm should fit but you will be raising the seatpost a little bit.

I could place the online order in store. which makes me use the coupons.

I am also thinking 50in should be okay with higher seat post position, but would that make back bend more?

You can adjust the handle bars and stem to make it work

a 50 will not fit you if you're 5ft 7in with a 32 inseam. don't kid yourself. that's a surefire way to see a chiropractor and have back and knee pain.

I'm not sure what you're riding, but this 50CM has a long effective top tube, reach, and taller head tube. This is close in those three dimensions to that of a Cannondale CAAD 12 or a Specialized Allez in size 54.

Also, the group set is two generations old. External shifting cables and 10 speed. Like was mentioned, new 11 speed 105 group is where you want to be. You should be able to find this bike slightly used for half this.

I am riding one of these Bikes direct road bikes. Remember, I am not using this for racing, but for commute and weekend ride, ~150 miles week.

So, you are saying 50in is bigger than other 50in bikes? I am looking to burn my coupons that only work in bike shops.. hence buying in shop than used..
