I am 171cm tall but the Dawe's recommendation of the 53 cm doesn't work for me.

My first had a 53cm frame as suggested in the buyers guide issued by my CTW scheme - it was far too big. I changed to a 48cm bike, and we've been living happily ever after since.
Selling it complete is simplest, and the time of the year is with you if you sell it now.
