@OldsCOOL, In short, 56 cm to 60 cm. My ideal size is ~58 cm, depending on TT length.

I try to balance KOPS, leg extension, and TT length more so than ST length. Reach is adjusted with the stem and handle bar combination. The 60 cm bike is my distance bike and I switched to it from a 58 cm frame to make a better compromise fit between using drops and aero bars (It can be windy around here.).

I have to also mention my son's 64 cm French Fit Olmo. It's way out of range for his 6' height, but accommodates his muscular physique wonderfully. It was my first attempt at such a project, but with using one of the 58 cm bikes as a test bed came out perfect.
