I agree with Jetboy that it is likely one size too small for you. You'd be happier on a 58cm frame or even a 60cm, measured from center of crank to center of top tube or where the seat post clamp bolt is located.

A racing bike is not ideal for a noob to ride in urban traffic. The tires are skinny and offer minimal cushioning on rough roads, no room under the brakes for fenders, and no eyelets for racks either.

FMV as described, about $300-$400 depending on market area, if the paint is very clean.
