I wouldn't count out that surly. I saw a 16in frame before and it looked like it would fit a sixth grader. They are very very small. 18in is more like your size but not sure about the drop bars. I am a little shorter than you and I use 21in. It just rides so much better especially if its alluminum. The surly will be steel though. You can do like Thermionic mentions and use bars with less reach. What exactly are you trying to gain by using the drop bars? Are you entering races etc?
