    What seatpost are you using? Is it a standard type or the two-bolt Thomson type? IF so, you might want a setback post on that...get the seat back so at 3 o'clock your knee is over the pedal center.

    I can't see why the bike feels so small..With all those spacers on the steerer, the long headtube and the large angle in your stem, you must be pretty upright--maybe that's it. You might have long enough arms you can do without he spacers and use a zero rise stem. I have no spacers and 5 deg rise on a short stem-- and my bar height lower than my seat about an inch (medium frame)

    I don't ride an ID, but it sounds like you have too much post and too much stem rise. 10" of post on a large frame at 6'1" or 6'2" is too much. If you have around a 34" inseam, the saddle height from the pedal(5 o'clock position)to the top of the saddle(center portion) should be around 38". I would try ditching the spacers or putting them above the stem and see how it feels. I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam and I ride a large Truth(24.25 TT), I run the above saddle height with a 130mm/5 degree stem and a 5mm spacer-perfect fit. Also, with the 5" fork and 10 degree stem, try a riser bar w/ less than 2" rise.
