2008 Giant OCR A1 W, buy?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

2008 Giant OCR A1 W, buy?

I found a 2008 Giant OCR A1 W bike for sale for $150. I feel like its a good deal even if its been used pretty heavily but my concern is a cannot figure out the sizing and don't want to make the hour trip to look at it if its not going to work. The bike is for a 5ft 6in female and the frame is a size small. I haven't been able to pin down what size frame it would be because I cannot figure out if the women's edition of the OCR A1 is sized different (ie a small is a 48 instead of a 50, etc) than regular Giant frames. Any help on this subject?

Thanks.

Probably 46

My wife had the small OCR3 and upgraded to a 46 TCR. She is 5 ft 4. Same fit.
