I'm right in that range. Was 5'7 1/2" in the late 50's early 60's, in my prime running shape. Old age shrank me to around 5'6", less if bad posture. I am with @iab. If hands, butt and feet are within my comfort zone, I ride. Fleet runs from 52 cm to 56cm seat tube size but the 52 has a 55cm top tube. Also saw my weight rise from118-122 range up to 160+ as fat replaced muscle. In January I set a goal of 150#. Reached & new goal is 140#. I'm at 148-149 now and have seen 147# a few times. Highly recommend benefits of lowering rider/bike mass by losing a few pounds. Don
