Quintana Roo : Te Quilo What Year and Frame Size?

Hi I am an avid cyclist. Mostly road and during the fall months MTB. Bike trips are always planned around climbing; the longer and steeper the better.
I recently picked up a Quintana Roo Te Quilo , a brand I had never heard of before . I found it while perusing a local online classified site and it intrigued me.
The frame size looked about right I am 5 foot 6 and the price was reasonable ( $75 CAD) for the group set it had .

After a deep clean and a good tune up I took it out for a spin. It rides really nice. Smooth quick shifting and with the aero bars and positioning it tackles the strong head winds we are having lately nicely
Gearing is a bit weird or not what I am use to but it seems to work with the 650c wheels.

I am trying to pin point a year for the bike and the frame size (I attached some center to center dimensions which are in centimetres)
The last 4 digits of the serial number are 1095 so I am thinking maybe it was made in Oct 1995?

Any recommendations , suggestions and/or comments much appreciated Wheel size 650c Deep V

Derailures : Dura-Ace

Crank Arms are Dura-Ace with : 55/39

Cassette : 11-21 ( 11-12-13-14-15-17-19-21 )

Brakes ia Compe BRS 200

Seat :Adamo Road Full Gel


Thanks

This looks to be the same size as my brother's 650C QR Kilo which is a 53. He is also 5'6". Triathlon bikes often use a "dropped" top tube to get the handlebars lower for a better aero position and the frame is usually measured center-to-top of seat lug.

Looks like a nice ride. If it were mine, I'd re-route the shift cables over the top of the base bar between the armrests. That angle on the rear shift cable housing at the downtube cable adjuster just looks wrong.

Thanks for the comments...when you say a frame is usually usually measured center-to-top of seat lug you mean center of BB to top of seat lug....if so I have 50 cm frame.
It is a bit tight in the cock pit right now....In normal riding position hands on the base bar near brake
levers I can easily see the front wheel axel 3 inches in front of me.
I currently have a 90mm stem and now trying to source a 130mm stem. Not easy to find for 1 inch bars.
And yes the rear derailleur cable needs to be re-route it works well but is not right.

I canít find it now, but somewhere on Sheldon Brown thereís a page dedicated to locating and deciphering frame serial numbers to identify when and where a frame was made.
