Size right?

Is there any indication in any of these photos that confirms this is a 55 cm frame? It looks smaller than 55 cm to my untrained eye.

so test ride before buying ... [n/a on ebay] sloping top tubes seat tubes measure shorter since it meets the top tube lower

look up the brand website and look there for more data.

Just a quick update. I emailed the seller and he confirmed it was not a 55 cm, so he ended the auction.
