    It would helpful if you were sitting on the bike in the photo. But it's looks like you are more torso than legs ,which should mean that you need a little more reach than someone who is the opposite . If you feel comfortable on it ,that's all that matters. If you aren't then describe the issue ,I'm sure someone will have a suggestion on how to address it.

    More reach means you'll likely size up to a L if you're between sizes.

    At 511, I think youre solidly on size large on almost any brand/frame.

    Im 61, and am in the crossover point between L and XL most of the time. I went with a L last time, and had to put a longer stem on it to try to make it larger.

    Cannondale is not known to make very long bikes, so I am certain that bike is too small for you. I would think it would be painful and awkward to ride.

    I'm 5'11" and it looks a little small to me. According to Cannondale, we are typically sized to a large Trail model.

    Are your arms locked in that photo? I so ,they shouldn't be. Hard tell where you are on the saddle ,you might be able to move it some . You haven't told us what the problem is.

    Yea you could go to a large frame but unless you feel cramped and uncomfortable it doesnt sound like an immediate problem.
    Im 510 and can go between M/L frames.
    Generally speaking longer bikes will be more stable, mostly noticeable at speed. Unless you feel like your bike is really restricting your progress I wouldnt worry about it. Ride your bike, have fun, and when it comes time to upgrade look into large frames.

    Looks like your seat is a touch too high, judging from the leg extention in the second photo. (Note whether or not your hips are rocking in the seat during the pedalling)
    Frame size you got will work..
    Other adjustments could be made, seat, seatpost, stem, handlebars.
