Your 11s crankset should work with an 11s chain. You can also use a Shimano mountain bike rear derailleur 9s with a 12-36 cassette.

It looks much larger than my 54 and 56cm frames. However, if it's 650c wheels then it might be a 56. Maybe the seller could share with you what the tire size is if they don't want to measure the...
