Thank you all for the nice comments.
BMC sizing is 55cm.
Felt and Cervelo are 56cm.
I am 5'11". I agree that it looks big, but remember that the frame is not sloping.

The BMC SLT01 is one of my all-time favorite bikes. Looks really nice!

My brother had SRAM RED on his bike before which I tried. Had a hard time with the front shifting. I guess I did not give it a chance. SRAM RED is light though.
