I also have stumpy legs with more of my height in my upper body. I ride a 51cm (traditional style steel) frame in order to get good reach to the bars. I had a 48cm road frame at one time, but no matter how long a stem I put on it, it didn't feel right. So my standover height is just a little taller than the rule of thumb, with a little less seatpost showing than for most folks.
