Newb needs advice in bike size

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)

Newb needs advice in bike size

I am 6' tall and living in South Korea currently. I was measured for a bike and was informed a 60 cm frame would be the size for me (i have long legs and extremely long arms too for my size). The problem is that I wanted to sit on some bikes to get a feel for them but being in SK, the guys here are a lot smaller and they didnt have any bikes that big for me to sit on and ride.

Im looking to get a leader 722ts and the 2 sizes (closest to 60cm) they offer are 58 cm and 61cm. Which do you suggest I get?
