When you're looking at horizontal top tubes, especially, 58cm sounds a little low to me...
The tricky part with a 59-60 is that the TT length (and reach) and standover go up too. I lucked into two 58's with sloping TT's and high stacks, though somewhat disguised. One's a Diverge with its Future Shock plus 15mm of spacers, the other is a Synapse with the Cdale headlight/spacer, which adds 30mm, plus 15mm regular spacers on top of that. Both also had the stems flipped up when I got them, so lots of stack for me.
