I'm 6'4" tall with a 35" inseam. My current bike measures 26" from the center of the cranks to the top of the seat tube. The 62cm LHT says it's 24.4". Is this going to be tall enough for me? I know other bikes are offered with longer seat tubes, but the LHT frame really appeals to me.
My inseam is 35.8" and, the 62cm is about the minimum size I am comfortable on, but it is ok. Given your inseam of 35", I think you will be fine on the 62cm frame.

I have a 35 in. pbh hight and ride a 60 cm. LHT, I didn't need the longer top tube of the 62 cm. the ft center of the 60 is enough to cure the toe overlap of my size 13 feet were known for. I am as happy as a clam with it.

Im 6'1" and a 34" iseam and ride a 60cm LHT. The 62cm should fit you fine.

You and I are nearly the same size. I've tried using 62 cm touring bikes. The Raleigh Kodiak 24" was TOO small and just wouldn't work. My Atala 25" and my old Schwinn Voyageur 25" were nearly perfect.

My friend (who i am about to go on a tour with) just found a 32'' bike. He thinks it was custom made. He's 6'8'' and all legs though so it was a lucky find!
