    My friend who rides S2 said the Cervelo dealer might know better. My fitting guy is a really good one, though.

    My GF is 5'6" and she is on a 51cm S2. I am 5'8" and on a 54cm S2. The 48cm will have a really short head tube. If you are not that flexible...you could end up with a big stack of spacers under the stem.

    Re: S2 size advise

    For 5'6", your inseam of 28.5 inches if measured from crotch to the floor without shoes is relatively "short". This may be one of the reasons why your fitter recommended the size 48 S2. Only you and your fitter can assess your flexibility. Stem length, angle, amount of spacers below the stem as well as handlebar drop and reach are other considerations for your fit on the bike.
