Could be but angle doesn't help as shortens it.

I'm 6,3 and old so I have a 56cm road bike for the reach. Stems/posts go up and down! :wink: that's the easy bit to change.

If this was old style retro bike from the 80's or earlier I would have said no it isn't big enough.
As it's a newer style bike I would say it is big enough.

The angle of the photo doesn't help as it's difficult to tell if the top tube slopes down to the seat tube or is straight.

Judging by the length of the seat post though I would say it is fine.

Proportional geometry frame, 20", 6'. That's spot-on mate. Not only have you a fabulous birthday present, you have a missus who buys bike stuff for you in the right size....YOU LUCKY BAR STEWARD!! :lol:
