Am I making a mistake with getting a mid-step radmission?

I'm about 5'10 without shoes with an inseam around 34.5 inches with shoes on. I have a wingspan of 68.5 inches, so long legs and short arms.

after a lot of research, i've pretty much decided that the mid-step radmission is better for me due to my longer legs and little bit shorter arms. I know nothing about bikes though, so part of me is still feeling like its a mistake to get the mid-step, and that it will be too cramped. I am at the max recommended inseam for the mid-step version too.

I have no way of testing it out before I buy it either.

Am I making a mistake by going with the mid-step? Does anyone have similar measurements for your proportions and ride the mid-step? Everything I read says i'd be better with more of a medium frame and not a large, but I just worry it will feel too small and i will regret not getting the bigger one.
