Interested to know if you did a 1 hour test or 20min. Are you using the Duo or Uno? Either way, a beginner at 257 is very very good IMO.

If a fitter told you that you need a 56cm frame, a 51cm frame will be too small for you. It's not just about how high the seat tube is. Smaller frames have less reach and you will be cramped.
