Well, I'm not an expert on bike frame dimensions, but at 6-2" and with fairly normal proportions, I've never had a bike fit better than my 59cm Hab and I've done several multi-week tours with days approaching 100 miles with no comfort or bike handling issues. Standover seems more/less normal with other road bikes I have with level (or nearly level) top tubes. YMMV.
