Need advice please

Hello, I purchased a dual sport bike, specifically a Trek DS 8.4 last year, which is a great bike but unfortunately it is not fitting me well. The frame is a 15.5, as the 13 frame would have been too small, but the 15.5 is too big. I do not have any stand-over space when stopping. So now I am looking at getting another bike and selling this one. I am looking at the Specialized Ariel Sport and also the Giant Rove. Does anyone have any experience with these bikes? I do not want to make another mistake. I was also considering a Cannondale Trail 4 or a Specialized Jett but can't seem to find any. I appreciate your advice.
