I'm 178cm and I use the size large for the 062.

Your inseam is important to consider too, if your seat will be to high for the bar(frame too small).
Or if the bar will be to far from the saddle(frame too big)

If you have the courage, try to draw the geometry, and compare it to your current bike.

I'm a very proportional 5'11" and ride the 18.5". Definitely stay with the 17". On most frames, I can do an 18.5 or 19.5 and be fine. This is not one of them. I love the bike and it's super fun but it is tall in the top tube. I am fine with the standover but I wish it had more as it's really close to being too high. I have the WW 062 in the 18.5 also and it doesn't feel as bad with the standover

I think you are right bxcc, I've changed to 17".
What do you think about the bottom bracket size ? I need an eccentric BB and was about to go with pf30 .

Not sure. I've been wondering the same thing. My 062 frame is setup as a SS and I would like to get rid of the tensioner. I have the BSA option in both frames and they've been issue free.
