Anyone have a R&M Homage in 49 cm frame?

I have an R&M Nevo in size 43 cm that fits me pretty well. This bike is going to my wife and it is time to order a new one for myself.

I like to get a dual battery Homage, but I'm fearful the smallest frame (49 cm) may be too large for me. I'm 5'-5" with a 27" inseam. None of the R&M dealers on the east coast have a 49 cm Homage in stock or plan to bring one in unless it is ordered for a customer. Because of this, it is going to be impossible to try a 49 cm frame to see how well it fits me.

I was wondering if any of you forum members have a 49 cm Homage? I could get lucky and find someone within a few hours drive from me. If I got that lucky, maybe you would be willing to let me try your bike out for size.

If you have any suggestions on how to figure out if the 49 cm Homage would fit me, please feel free to share them with me. Thank you.

I found a Culture in size 49 cm that should be nearly identical to the Homage 49 cm. I'm going to go see how this Culture fits next week.

I also found out the R&M has a price increase effective March 1st. Any bikes ordered on or after that date, will be subject to the new price. The 2021 Homage Rolhoff is going up about 8% in USA - from $9,389 to $10,169..
