    Not implying that its the bike and not u but... A 50cm seems a tad small unless u have mega short legs.

    Too small for you most likely. Look at the geometry chart.

    A 50cm Kilo (measured center-to-center) is the same as a 53cm (measured center-to-top).

    No, Kilo just measure everything differently...

    You're not going to accomplish anything if a little discouragement will make you stop riding your bike and sell it...not trying to be a jerk, just an observation.
