Should i buy a size 52 road bike or a size 56 road bike?

So pretty much I'm buying a new bike. I have the option to get a scott addict full of accessories from a friend for €1500, or for €900 I can buy a kubota bike size 54. I'm 176cm tall but I'm 15 so I think I will grow taller. I've read bike shops can adjust the stem length and increase tje spacers to adapt got your height to frame dis level. What do you think i should buy, the scott addict size 52 or kubota 54cm?

For the size point of view I'd advise the 54. As you're growing you could well outgrow it in a few years but maybe you'll want to swap it in by then.

generally you stop growing at 16 so 54 might be a good idea. If you’re flexible you could get away with a 52 & a longer stem. Remember racers will deliberately size down to save weight but they have been used to riding in an aggressive position from a very young age.
