I'm 6' 1" and ride 58 cm bikes with 11 cm stems so I wouldn't have thought you would be too far out with the 59 cm frame and an 8 or 9 cm stem. It is certainly worth trying.

If you also flipped the stem, it would bring the bars even closer, though you might not like the more upright position. Again - it is worth trying.
