I've fought this for 50 years. I'm 6'4", and I prefer a 64 or 65cm frame (don't tell me that's too big--dozens of shop employees have tried, and they're wrong). Until I got old enough to be assertive, I bought a string of 60-62cm bikes ("Don't worry--we can make it work") because that's all that was in stock. I was miserable. I thought EVERYBODY on a bike was miserable. For my midlife crisis a few years ago I bought an Atlantis from Rivendell and followed their sizing guidelines. The local experts (many of them friends) insisted I'd be sorry, but I was instantly more comfortable on the bike than I'd ever been.
