Hey all! I just bought a used trek 3500 for $125. It has a 13 inch frame. I am 5'6. I am just wondering if this is a huge deal. I plan on riding a decent amount and doing bikepacking in the future. Would you say that this bike is ok? Or should i try and find something else? Thanks!

Go to a shop and test ride some sizes outside. Go on the grass and into a ditch if possible standing up. You're more likely a 17.5 unless you've got a short torso for your height.

not sure how you bought this... if possible return bike and get money back.. if not feasible sell bike and then buy a properly sized bike this is going to likely be much too small..
