I just bought a Schwinn Fastback, frame size is large. After adjusting the saddle angle and seatpost height to get the most pedaling efficiency, the saddle is now only an inch higher than the head stem. I feel comfortable when riding it after the adjustments. But I keep thinking that the frame is too big for me because of the seat height. Is the frame size too big for me? Should I get a medium size? I am 5'8" with 29" inseam (shortie). Attached is a manufacturer picture. I have edited it so it looks like the setup of my bike.
