 Thank you for the reply! I searched for more help on frame sizing for my specs and at competitivecyclist.com it appears a 59 frame is suited for me, cause as u said, the arm reach counts more than seat tube, i have long arms for my height, 1" forearm, so they said i should have a 58,5 top tube and a total effective reach of 72 plus minus 2( top tube plus stem) so i could ride a 56 frame with 14cm stem or a 59 with 11cm stem, but at the time i am writing this down, i own an old Giant Terrago that has a 22" seat tube, its too large for me , but its a MTB geometry frame, i am not certain what size to get, i had the chance to ride a 60cm Colnago road bike and it felt like it was built for me, so i guess i should go with the 59 on cx700, its kinda accurate cause i have 2 inches above you in height and inseam and longer arms, but then again cx700 seems to be some kind of hybrid, a mix of mtb and road, u agree with that i think so a 56 should be ok.
I wanna ask you how does the frame feel riding it? Does it feel strong, sturdy? I have doubts about the material used, is it really 4130 cromoly? The bike in the picture, how much does it weigh?
Thanks a lot for the support. I promise to send u some pics of my bike when i will complete it, i allready bought components except the stem and frame

 Thanks dude. Ya I really like this thing, I use this the most out of my bikes. This frame is a 56cm, and I am 5-11 with a 32 inseam. This frame is just a tab to big for me but I have a short stem that helps out and eventually would like to get a compact drop bars. So I think this would be a perfect size for you. Hope this helps
