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

I am confused what exactly is your question? Maybe calm down a bit re-read what you wrote and compile it into something more understandable.

It may or may not, you will find out if it works for you when you ride it. I am assuming you did the tiniest modicum of research before buying it and didn't just click buy without even thinking.

Good...then you should be in decent shape. Everyone's body is different and you may find it works well at your height but it may not that is why normally I would have people test ride bikes. Unfortunately the current climate makes that rather hard because bikes aren't easy to come by. I am not someone who guesses at bike sizing I want to at least see the person and get a sense of their body because maybe you have really long arms or something that would need to be corrected for on the bike or cause a different size to be recommended.
