Is this a so-called "training" bike? Since they just slap flat bars on an
otherwise normal frame it could simply be too short.

For flat bars I use a frame with 600mm seat to steerer plus a 120mm stem
(ie, mountain bike). My drop bars are on a standard 560 frame with 90mm
stem. I would like to put flats on but how do I find 70mm?
