I think you've got short legs, and yes that probably translates to the smallest frame. I'm 6'2" and have a 35.5" inseam. Yeah, my legs are long, but I also know that 31" isn't average. I can fit on a 60cm frame but typically ride a 57-58 depending on what's available. I'll change the stem if my riding position isn't quite right.
Go sit on a bike and figure out how it feels. You can change stems so easily that if you need to, change it out to a longer stem. A good LBS will recognize this and probably just exchange it.
