Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

That being said I have frames that are 56cm, 57cm, 58cm, 59cm, 60cm, and 62cm which all fit me just fine. This goes to show that there is no one answer for you and you must go with what feels right while you are riding the bike.
Thank You! I'll definitely go ride couple different sizes and see what fits me the best.

I think we're seeing the echo of Christmas, nobody made any big purchases for about 6 weeks, but now it's time for new toys. Not sure about this OP, but most of the recent ones seem to be high school kids.
Tax return time!
