I have just bought a racing bike of ebay, brand new (bad choice lol) The person has sent me a 24" frame instead of a 22" frame, like I ask for. Now I'm 6ft tall and inside leg 32".
Is this bike going to be to big for me?
Will I need a foot stall to mount it lol!
Thanks in advance

Wow what a helpful forum! A simple "yes" or "no" would have been nice!
I don't know that anyone knows the answer. There is a bit more to bicycle fit than inseam and height. Try the bike out, and if it doesn't fit demand a refund and shipping costs. The guy sent you the wrong bike.

What barba said. it sound like it'll probably be too big, but ya never know. At 5'10", my first road bike had a 23" frame. But the bottom bracket was lower than what's normal today, so that effectively lowered the top bar. I'd recommend contacting the seller before you go to the trouble of assembling it. If it's an 'oops' on his part, maybe he'd rather not have Q/R chomp marks on the frame while you check it out, and want you to send it straight back.
