I'm a tad over 5'8" and ride both a small frame Stumpjumper hardtail and dual sus. I had to make some changes to make the hardtail work, including buying the longest seatpost Thompson makes. I don't see how its possible for someone 6'2" with long legs can ride a small frame Stumpy, no matter what changes are made.
My 6' son is able to ride my old 17" frame Rockhopper, but his legs are shorter than yours (30"). I think you're going to have to sell the Stumpy frame and buy another to fit. Fortunately for you, small Stumpy frames are in demand.
BTW I buy slacks with 29" inseam or 30" inseam and lift them 1/2 inch. No way you can add to a seatpost that's already pretty much maxed out. I'm just trying to prevent you from spending money on a lost cause. I'm away on business, but I'll check when I get home to see what's left on the seatpost.
