Bike Sizing Help!

I need some help sizing a bike up. It is a Quintana Roo Caliente Triathlon Bike. I am getting a super good deal from a friend but I need to commit within 24 hours. I'm not sure if I should get a Medium or a Large. I am 6'0" tall and have a 34 in inseam. I have relatively short arms, would that make a difference? I have ridden road bikes and mountain bikes for a while, but really want a TRI.

Here is the sizing charts:

Thanks!

well the bike has to be shipped from the west coast, that really isn't feasible. They said they could take returns, but It is going to take me a while just to build the bike first, any suggestion?

I'm going to assume that the deal you are getting is $1800, and while this is a good deal, don't rush your order in the next 24H just for that price, it will be available again. Personally (6'0" and 33"IS) I would say large but, thats because I have longer arms.
To find out what fits for you go and try one out.
If I had a spare $1800, the caliente is probably what i would get.
