    "about 32 inches" What does that mean.

    How can you be sure the CL bike is actually a 56cm.

    Take it for a test ride to find out.

    Go online and find the geo chart for the bike and compare the effective top tube. If they are withing a CM of each other then go ride it.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
