How does the Co-op Cycles ADV 2.3 Bike run size wise?

Interested in the very ugly Co-op Cycles ADV 2.3 Bike.

it looks like I am between sizes, I am 5ft 9in which is at the end of the Medium frame size or the beginning of the Large. Does this frame run small or large? Which one is the best bet to order initially?

@Dennis1974 Thanks for reaching out!

When you land between sizes, you'll want to consider your inseam and the standover height of the bike. The medium frame of the Co-op Cycles ARD 2.3 bike has a standover height of 29.75", and the large has a standover height of 30.9". For a gravel/road bike such as the ARD 2.3 you'll want at least an extra inch of clearance in your standover height. If you know your inseam, great, if not, measure it with your cycling shoes on and that should give you a good idea of which frame will work best for you. 

Please let us know if you have any other questions. Hopefully this helps!
