This is not correct.

25" Chromoly 4130 Steel Lugged Frame (Ideal for a taller rider between 5'11"-6'4")
What height bracket would be? I've built 25" road frames for men/women of that height. Ultimately it depends on their inseam but generally that height bracket works.

I'll add the specs to the post here. Sorry about that.

A 25" frame (63.5cm) requires a person at least 6'2" to ride with minimal comfort and at least 6'4" to fit properly. I would recommend your bracket be between 6'3" and 6'8".

By the way I didn't nit-pick these sources. They are all from the first 10 Google results for "road bike size chart."

Thanks! Aside from the posted components, there is a NOS alloy Road Champion drop bars, Shimano Light Action derailleur, Dia Compe calipers, Shimano freewheel, alloy three piece crank (unsure about the brand). Let me know if you have another questions.

For what it's worth, I am 5'11", one of my bikes is a 25" Schwinn (Super!?) Le Tour, similar vintage. It has a 58 cm top tube, same as my 24" Trek. Sure the top bar is higher than ideal as far as stand over height, but I don't mind that. I commute on it & also did a day ride over 140 miles once, and it was just as comfortable as my smaller sized bikes.. Long story short, take it with a grain of salt when someone tells, only based on rider height, that a bike will or will not fit comfortably.

This

I'm 6'1", but I have shortish legs (30" inseam), so I have trouble with larger frames even though the charts and such all say that I need one.

There is SO much more to bike fit than just the length of the seat tube; rider leg and torso length, flexibility, BB height and so many other things make it a way more complicated process than just looking at how tall somebody is.

Seconded, Dug.  Much more goes into a good fit.    

I'm 6ft with a 32 inch true inseam.  This basically leaves me with two production-frame options in relation to most road frames.  Ride a 56cm frame, which works fine for me stand-over height wise, and then use an 80mm or so stem to get the right reach to the bars, which often results in being told by all the self-proclaimed fit experts that my bike doesn't fit because I'm using such a short stem; or ride a 54cm frame with a normal 100mm length stem, but deal with comments from the same self-proclaimed interent fit experts telling me I'm riding a bike that doesn't fit because I'm using such a ridiculous amount of spacers to get the bars to the height I want and because they read on the internet that not more than a fistful of seat post should be showing if the bike fits.  

In other words, just because you read something generic on the internet regarding sizing doesn't mean it holds true for everyone (or even most) people.
