I like your bike and don't find the fit a problem. I have 4 bikes that are "too big" for me and I enjoy each of them a lot, a long miles lot. And my Raleigh Pro was judged too big for me by "a very experienced professional fitter". I was really nice to him but ignored that barking dog.

I'll even submit that a too large frame has health benefits as you practice staying limber by having to throw your leg over that tall TT and saddle. As I approach the end of my 7th decade, that seems to be working for me. Enjoy that ride. It looks great.
