Ild size down, and take the toptube as indicative. Don't forget its sloping TT so the seattube is inevatibly going to be shorter on the pre cursa.
I had a medium at 5'10/11" for reference
I’m the same height as you and I had a 50cm PC, it was perfect! It has a sloping TT so the ST measurement doesn’t directly compare to traditional geometry. I don’t have it any more so can’t take any measurements for you unfortunately.
Edit - new page fail - what @Rodolfo said!
Really appreciate the input everyone thank you :)
I’m 5’6” and ride a 52cm FXE with an 80mm stem and find it comfortable. Not sure whether geometry differs much between the FXE and the Pre Cursa but somebody else may be able to chip in.
I’m 5’7 and ride the 50cm.
I'm 5'9 and rode a 52cm
Double spoke Pre cursa with a freewheel being ridden around the corner - brakeless...
Breaks are death!;)
anyone managed to fit 28c tyres in the stock Alpina track forks? If so, what rim/tyre combination?
I've squeezed 28c GK and Corsa's in there on a kinlin but forget anything from Conti.

looking at getting a pre cursa - im 5'10, and im stuck between getting the 52/54. Anyone else who is around my height got any input that could help? (i know its a pretty impossible question, for all you know im all legs)
I'm a teeny bit over 5`11" and I've got a 54. Tiny legs and a long torso though so I need the top tube length.
I’m 5’11” and on a 54cm, a 110mm stem and pretty short-reach drops+hoods.
I like the geo but wouldn’t want the frame any lower and/or longer.
I'm same height and had a 54:
Selling my Dolan PC. Ridden a handful of times and built last March.
My cursa is ready for the roadz, nothing to fancy. Heavy as fukk
A question for anyone here who has built a bike from a recent Precursa frame. Does the headtube need reaming and facing, or it's good to go out of the box?
Currently looking at picking up a local complete Pre Cursa for ~£200.
I'm 6ft witha 33" inseam and currently ride a 56cm GT gravel bike.
The Pre Cursa is 54cm and current rider says they're 5ft11. I've read here about sizing down, but just wondering if there's anyone else my height with a 54cm frame and can comment?
I used to be on a 54cm FXE and am a tiny bit taller than you. However, my legs are a bit short for my torso, so the stack was alright, but I was using a 130mm stem to get the right amount of reach. So reasonably speaking, I probably should have been on a 56cm frame at least. Still really enjoyed it though, and used the bike both for commuting and long rides.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
