Could you provide required seat tube angle and head tube length (or stack/reach measurements).
Seat tube angle would need to be in the 73 degree range. Head tube length would beed to be somewhere near 15cm.
Traditional lugged extreme power frame geometry for example.
To me top tube length is important The seat tube can be made up with the seat post. The angles can be made up by seat position, handle bar choice, stem length spacers etc.
If you wanted exact sizes you would go custom.
But here it is again.
Anywhere between a size 54-56 would work in this case and if it was set appropriately the with the components frame size will be irrelevant.
I would always opt for the smaller frame size.
If you must be exact save your money and buy custom.
We were looking at custom but found Condor do a RL version of the barrachi but also do a custom option on all frames for £100, which means you can get a custom carbon for not a lot of £. We are gonna get a different fork to the monstrosity on it and may tweak the geo a bit with custom but at just 6 ft with hardly any reach she was pretty good on the stock 55cm she tried today. She loved the bike too, reckoned it was like riding on a cloud but glued to the road (her words)!! But I guess on here that bike is heavy low end.
Maybe the 52 is nearly what you are after? In terms of TT, STA and HT (don't see ST relevance aside from a square frame) it's mm out.
They do lighter carbon bikes you could go custom on but you don't want that option?
