    Tallest bike award...

    Does anyone make a bike taller than this one?
    Even without the seat down low, the frame looks odd.
    The basic paired triangle frame shape is instead a small triangle and a massive quadrilateral.

    Oddly enough, most of the Japanese brand carried a 68cm in their lineup in the 80's. The Japanese are not known as being the tallest people in the world. Miyata,Bridgestone,Fuji, Lotus, Panasonic and Raleigh(made in Japan)all made a Cro-Mo bike. The difference was mainly in top tube length.

    Gazelle built the Champion Mondial up to 70cm. Gotta have a pic somewhere ...

    The Gazelle Champion Mondial could also be ordered in a civilian outfit. From the 1984 brochure:
