Would you say your inseam is short relative to your overall height?

I'd guess a 55/56cm with a short stem but the folks in the Touring forum may provide a better answer.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
