I have a few quick questions about the aesthetics of different frame sizes.

We can all agree that large traditional frames--horizontal toptube--look weird, and the optimal size is a 52-56, right?

My main question is that does everyone agree that small sloping frames look terrible, while large sloping frames look better than their traditional frame brethren?

Chances are very low that everyone will agree on any aesthetic issue.

Get what you want.

Eric is right. But just to answer the two questions initially asked, in no particular order... No, and No.

I ride a 53, so all other frames look weird to me!

the only things that look weird to me are 650 wheels on 57+ cm framed bikes , and 700c wheels on smaller than 52cm frames...

I'm not asking because I am buying a bike now, I was asking simply b/c it is something that I have observed.

I'm on 57-58cm frames. Like a horizontal or near horizontal top tube. Totally disagree with OP on the compact frame in my size. Thought it looked pretty weird.

Here's my examples
