When buying my frame, I did pay attention to the geometry written on the site, but for my leg positions, I needed the seat higher.
Because most people don't like the way the extender looks, I posted it mostly in jest. But then again if it makes riding comfortable for you, then yes, 'fashion' be damned.

I have long legs/ short upper body, and have learned to size my frames per the leg, avoiding the situation you are in now. Stems can always be swapped to adjust the reach. I have one bike now that looks like yours that I will end up selling since I can't ride it for long.
