Medium or 52cm frame.I am right between the medium and large with a height of 5’10”. I have a 31” inseam.
The bike will primarily be used for commuting (40 mile round trip).
Would you buy the medium or large and why?
It looks like their site information is suspect....Medium or 52cm frame.

I recommend you try both 48cm and 52cm side by side.
And 56cm (large) will be too big for you and I am certain you will regret getting the large frame.
No dealer in the country has this bike yet. It will arrive in 3-4 weeks time.I cannot find an LBS in Minnesota with a demo bikes; so I will need to make a decision based on the input here.
Lamere cycles in Minnesota has some interesting insight.side note, Lowstep EU chart has "2020" in the url string (website link)
I am working with Lamere cycles now - they’re great to work with. One thing for sure - there are many different views on sizing. He said whichever way I go if I don’t like it he’ll take care of it . They seem very transparent and trust them.
If I were you and had to pull the trigger sight unseen: I'd go 52 and low-step. Take my opinion with a grain of salt as this is me translating my experience with the 4.0 Trekking 48 high step (and I'm an inch shorter than you). Might be completely revised/different geometry.... If folks were me at 5'10 (31" inseam) and did not have the option to demo - what would you pull the trigger on?
Your frame has a reach of 365mm in 48, right? These new frames are different to yours.If I were you and had to pull the trigger sight unseen: I'd go 52 and low-step.
