Take it back to the place you bought it and swap for one the right size. If you bought it used, continue enjoying it while you look for your second bike. Maybe a stem of different angle/length will make it better for little cost.

Welcome to BF.

I see you got a 56 cm frame. I'm 6'-0" and ride a 56 cm frame. 6"-2.5" sounds like a 59-62 cm frame.
Can you return it?

Welcome to bikeforums...All brands have different geometry.I am 6,2 and i have a 60cm and a 58cm. I have been professoinally fitted on both bikes,and they fit perfect. Your best bet is to get fitted.
