Trek FX series hybrids, how's the fit?

I'm looking for a bike to set up for winter with fenders and wider tires. I found a 2016 FX7.1 in great shape, but it's a drive for me to go check it out, and it's a 22.5". I'm 5'9", just way too tall for me to consider? I currently ride a 51 cm road bike that feels just a touch small for me.

Thanks!

Thanks. It looks super clean and they are only asking $100, but yeah, it sounds like it would be too big for me.

Thats an amazing price. I would have checked it out, turn the drive into a mini day trip.

I'm 5'-9" and ride a 52cm road bike. I have a 17.5" FX 7.4 that is a great fit. A 22.5" seems like it would be quite large.
