Sigh. Dream bike and you couldn't even get the size right?

I actually went to 3 professional fitters and had them take a look at me on the bike and they all had some information on my previous position and measurements and they said that this bike will be dandy and actually might be an even better fit than my old bike :)

Looks like a great set-up. If you're riding it like it is in the photos, it looks like the setup is fine for the frame size. Enjoy, and if for some reason it doesn't work, 56cm Six13s are reasonably common on eBay.
Zealots beware.

from what I can tell from the listings and other sources, I'm pretty sure that the bike weighs in around the 7kg mark, so around 15.5 - 16lbs; the frame is apparently especially light for the model because in a 58cm it weighs just under 1000g, aroun 995g or so, which is damn light...

995 seems very unlikely to me. Should be more like around 1150g. Did you weigh it ?

yea the previous owner, who is a friend of mine, had weighed it at my local bike shop, and all of them were surprised by the weight, but its right around 1000g cause they said it was just under 1 kg
