Need Help with Sizing!FUji

I have the opportunity to get a Specialized S-works cyclocross bike for really cheap. But I am not sure about the sizing. I am 5'7" and usually ride a 53cm. The S-works comes in a 52cm but the measurements are considerably larger than I am used to. Is this the way it supposed to be?

FOr example, my road bike has a 54cm t.t. with a 53cm seattube(c-t)

The S-works(52cm) has a 55cm tt and a 52cmseat tube (c-c) and 57 c-t

Any suggestions?

the ST is 52 c-c and 57 c-t? this can't be right unless it's measured to the top of the seat collar, even then I have the S-works and there doesn't seem to be that much extension on the seat tube.

I ride a 58 to 59cm road bike and a 56 cm S-Works cross frame so I would say that this frame would be too big for you but you never know. The TT seems to be about right so if youu can get the ST right it might be OK. What's your bike ST C-C measurement?
