It's always better to err on the small side; you can always get a longer stem or seatpost (although the handling might be a little squirrely).
+1 I am 6 feet with a 33 inseam. I have a Trek Madone 56 cm frame with an effective top tube 56.2 cm and a angle of 73.5 deg. I suggest getting professionally fitted. The 60cm seems too big.
