I'm 6'0 and DH is 6'3. Strollers are our mortal enemies, lol. We are so tall we absolutely can not use umbrella strollers, or any of the cheaper versions of strollers. We are looking into a travel system and found the Chico Cortina, but its hard to find. We constantly kick the back of strollers, which can get painful if you're wearing open toed shoes, and can be difficult to push when straining your fingers. Help?!
My husband is 6'4", and he does fine with the regular Graco strollers, but he also matches my strides(5'2"). Have you tried a jogging stroller? the wheels always seem father apart, and they look like they have better ground clearance.
We're the same height i have a joovy sit n stand stroller that isn't too short from what I've noticed, and I've had it through 3 kids! I think us tall ladies sometimes have to just make accommodations for our height because most companies do not.
SO is 6'3" and with his older kids had found a Graco model that had a handle that flipped up for taller folk. Of course he can't remember the model, though.... He did say he never found an umbrella stroller to work for him without stooping.

Sounds like you need a handle that adjusts out v's one that flips up, (to stop you hitting the back of the pram when walking.) Hope that you are able to find something suitable. I am 5'7, but still hit the back of the pram because I walk with a long stride :/
