Sounds as though your problem may be getting the saddle far enough back on the seat rails. I have the reverse with short thigh bones for my height of 5'6". I like a top tube length of 53.5 cms and find trouble getting the seat far enough forward. I would like a steep angle of 74 deg on the seat tube and I can only get this by going to a frame size that is too small for the TT length I want. I overcome this by using an inline Seat post that allows the saddle more forward movement.

But in your case- You want the Seat further back - if I understand your underlying problem. There are seat posts that have a bend in them to move the seat rearwards.

Other than that- I think you are looking at custom frames.
