Did any of those stems include a short one? I have the same problem with one of my bikes. The frame is a little too big for me and I feel stretched out. With the seat forward and going with a 70mm stem, I am comfortable. Interestingly, 60mm interferes with my standing pedal. Bike came with a 140mm stem.
