    The biggest frame I've ever seen

    72 cms c-t .... double toptube, double seatstays!

    http://link.marktplaats.nl/393719494

    Rack is welded (brazed I suppose) to the frame.

    I believe that was Yao Ming's bike. A friend of mine has a older Raleigh that the headtube me be at least a foot long. Tallest frame I've ever seen. We all laugh at it when were at his shop for club get togethers. He doesn't ride it but he sells vintage bikes in his skateshop.

    That's big, alright. I've never seen double seat stays like that. The lower top tube would be inches too tall for me.

    Very nicely done. Also the only time I can see how you'd want stem shifters over DT shifters, heh. I guess barcons would be the alternative.

    And a vintage one... Bill Walton's http://davesbikeblog.blogspot.com/20...tons-bike.html

    Note the totally awesome Grateful Dead headbadge. I'd LOVE something like that on one of my bikes.

    You don't need to lock that bike...who'd be dumb enough to try to steal it? The owner would crush you.

    Some years ago I remember seeing a picture of a Cannondale bike that was made for Shaquille O'Neal. Pretty large monster size frameset.

    I have a 27-inch (68.5cm) Univega Viva Sport frame in the barn. I cannot even get on it to ride it.

    I saw a Mike Melton custom 29" frame years ago, built "marathon" style. Impressive in the shop; more impressive going down the road under its owner.

    There are some Arvon frames out there in the 70cm plus range... as a specialty builder he gets a lot of build requests for bikes like this.

    Will have to get some pictures for y'all.

    Shrinkboy,
    You really know someone 2.5 meters tall? That's over 8 feet. Can't be more than a few of those fellas on the planet. I've known a couple of seven footers and they were huge. Couldn't imagine another foot tacked on.

    Interesting design. Judging by the lines in the garage door it appears the the top tube is higher where it joins the seat tube vs. the head tube. This is a sloping top tube going the other way.

    mis-type, not 2.5m, but 2.2m, around 7'1"...he has a brother 6'10", another 6'8", father is 2m, and mother just under that. i think i recall reading that the Dutch are the tallest populace in the world....

    just googled it- according to the google links, the Dutch are the tallest population in the world.

    And 100 years ago they were the shortest in the developed world. No one is quite sure how they got so tall so fast.
