Litespeed Sienna sizing on eBay (sanity check)

I've seen this Sienna on eBay and although it's advertised as a 56 the chap claims to have taken that measurement from the Center of the BB to the Top of the seat tube.

Judging by this sizing guide that actually makes it a 59 or 61.

I have tried discussing it with him but he's claimed to have had several assessments on how to measure road bikes and seems adamant it's a 56?

On a side note, he's 5'10 and it's too big for him, surely that should have set alarm bells off about the size?

Having worked in a few bike shops over the years am I a) correct b) going mad or c) behind the times?

    Errr... why don't you just ask him for the top tube measurement? Looking at the headtube it appears to be an XL or XXL.

  • I did but he hasn't provided it, he's just claiming
    I have had a number of assesments as to how a road bike is sized!

    I've told him to ask for his money back if he paid for those assessments. I will update if he confirms the size of the top tube..
