have you decided the route you would ply and terrain you'd like to cycle on i.e pcn, pavement, road, etc? For $3xx you could land better bikes in the used market and for your height peeps tend to land between 17-20" (via seatpost) or 55-60 cm (via effective top tube) frames i guess?

pavement + pcn suggest get a bike with thicker tires and more importantly proper brakes as you are sharing the path with walkers, joggers, prams ,etc haha nope i would strongly advise *against* a fixie for the places u intend to cycle!
