Help with Pinarello gan 105 disc!

Hello guys, i'm new to the road bike world, and decided to buy as a first bike a 2021 pinarello gan 105 disc, so i went to a local shop and ask which frame size was good for me, the guy told me i was 54 ( i'm 172 cms and 80 cms inseam) so i went home and order from Playtri the Pinarello gan frame 54 without knowing that pinarellos actually run big!
Right now I'm waiting for the bike to get home, but some friend that have pinarellos told me it was a really big frame for me, that it would not work.

so i don't know what to do now if i have to sell it and buy another (i'm abroad and i've ordered the bike right here) or if that bike would work for me.

Can someone please tell me what are the consecuences of a frame2 sizes bigger than recommended? can i make it work?

thank you guys in advance!

Pinarello sizing runs big. 54 is way, way too big for you.
I would guess you would fit 51.5

Any way to return it unopened for an exchange?

I could have sworn that Pinarello sized their bikes much differently than "normal" too, but it looks like that they changed it...a size 54 has a Stack of 556 and Reach of 384. Sounds like a good starting point for the OP

Here's the geo chart from Pinarello's website:

Pinarellos are sized quite differently. I hope the OP can make his work, however i'm going by his measurements stated- 172cm height
Of course everyone is different, but a 54 seems pretty far off the mark

So you went into a shop, wasted their time and bought a bike that is too big for you somewhere else without trying it out first? I would have just rolled the dice from the get go and avoided the local shop or better yet found a local shop that had the bike I was looking for so I could try it. Or you could have paid for a fit which would have been super handy and they could have helped you determine what bike is best and gone over the geometry and such to make sure you made the right purchase and maybe even suggest a local shop to get the bike from so you can get support for it easily.
