    Its worth making sure the whole bike fits you properly, frame size is only a part of it.

    There is a video overview of the basics of bike fitting http://www.smpsaddle.co.uk/index.php/specialist-bike-fitting.html and there is also a document you can download.

    Worth spending the time to get it right as early in your cycling career as you can imo
