Hi Guys and girls,
How does this frame size look for me?
Some say it looks too big others say its right.
Im not sure based on the feel because i have never ridden a road bike before...

Your crank isn't right at the bottom, but seeing as seat is at lowest, thats too big on a classic steel bike. That said if you can get a better pic, pedal at lowest, if you aren't wanting a race position, it will do the job.

Too big.
Can you comfortably straddle the top tube with both feet flat on the floor?
Great minds an all that

I agree with @fossyant - I think that it looks slightly too big. Even with the saddle right down that right leg is a bit too stretched, with what looks like a bit of a pelvic tilt as a result.

If I hired/borrowed it for a holiday I would ride it for a week but for a permanent bike I'd prefer a better fit.

Doesn't look like you will have any standover height. I wont ride a bike without it, but maybe it doesn't bother you.
I still say too big.

I think the bike is OK, you just need some longer legs........................................sorry ^_^

Too big, you need the pedal at the bottom with a smidgin of knee bend.
Yeah that's a pity but its looking to be the consensus.
