5'8" I'd think a 54 is a better size.. you might consider a sloping top tube
diamond frame.. top tube a virtual 55 cm long, seat tube would be shorter..

seat post extended higher.

those 2 thin tubes are not very stiff , like 1 bigger tube .

bult up a light weight of 531 for a GF, you could not pull up on the bars.
the headtube torqued , and the wheel moved sideways.
