Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I think I can't tell anything from that picture.

Adjust seatpost to the correct setting for your leg stroke, and take another picture.

(how tall are you, and what size did you order? The "size 56" has a 52cm c-c seat tube, so they are not labled as per geometry.)

Can't tell well from that picture but it looks more or less right ... at least in the ballpark? It looks like you have plenty of clearance between your crotch and the top tube. You also don't appear to be straining for the bars either.

Unless you are saying it is too small, in which case I will point out that your seat post is completely buried in its tube. Or it appears to be. If anything, the bike looks like it is possibly too small (it appears to be a very very small frame).

Again, hard to tell from that pic.

I [unfortunately] dated a girl that work at a diesel flagship store
and can recognize the back stitching anywhere.

Good save! hehe. Yeah, I know. I sometimes realize I know things I'd rather not know.
