I am 5' 8" and have a 21in top tube length and the frame is a large 54cm or 21.5in. It fits me fine and I prefer large frames but certainly not with drop bars. If you hurt like I do with drop bars, I'm not sure if going to a smaller frame will alleviate "all" the pain. It will certainly help some because your kona is more in the extra large category with too much reach for you. You will love that Surly though, and you can always change the bars if needed.
