    Top tube and standover?

    For 6" and inseam of 34" is a 58cm bike with a tt of 55.5cm and standover of 32.9 inches fine? or should i go bigger or smaller? the next size up is is 56cm tt and 34" that seems a little high for a standover, but with the 58 55.5cm tt isn't too cramped?

    Try bikes at a shop or use a fit calculator. Meanwhile, you'll get lots of differing advice here that can't actually address your dimensions, riding style, or preferences.

    If we all say yes will you buy it and then let us recommend a stem, offset seatpost and bars?

    Enjoy

    ok i feel like just saying "+1" isn't helpful to u at all. I was hoping someone would explain it.
    It'll be best if u can follow that fit calculator kyselad posted. Otherwise, generally for me I look at standover only as a reference. TT length is more important for me coz I don't want to feel too cramped or too stretched out, and i feel like standover isn't really much of an issue. Ur saddle will be raised anyway. And if u're afraid of hitting and damaging something downstairs, usually when u get off ur bike is tilted and it shouldn't matter much.

    Will you hit your nads when you fall forward? If not, then it's not too big.
