I'm riding a 56x56cm frame. It's got a high bottom bracket and a pretty high standover. I feel the frame is a little bit too small for be when I'm up in the saddle and I was wondering if I stood the bike on 2 platforms that were 2cm each would it generally give me a good idea of what a 58cm standover would be?

Yep :) Though with a 58cm frame you'd also have a slightly longer top tube. And you might be able to save yourself a lot of hassle and money by just raising your saddle a bit and maybe getting a slightly longer stem.

Yeah. I suppose I could.
I have the saddle really high and it's to the point where it's a hair/pushing it too high. I feel like I'm too high over the top tube. I DEFINATELY need a longer stem. I have a 100mm with bullhorns on there and I put a 120 90 degree on it and it feels much better. I'm fine with spending the money to make it fit a little better
