    XL Frameset with relaxed geometry

    I have a "Free Spirit" Sears bike from 1984 that is WAY too small for me, but I put LONG stem and seat post on it to see if I liked the VERY upright geometery. I mean I am vertical torso when I ride this thing. Is there a frameset out there, for a 6'4" guy, that accomplishes the same thing? I figure there's the Electra stuff, but you can't buy a frameset as far as I know. I guess there's Linus bikes out there too? What else?

    Why do you want just the frameset? I doubt many of the components from your old bike will transfer to a new frame. The money spent on individual parts plus the frame may exceed the cost of a new bike with all modern components.
