I was upset that I couldn't buy the venerated LHT frameset for myself because I am too tall...or so I thought. Then, just yesterday, I met a guy who is 6'7" and has a LHT! He had the 62cm sized frame of course and what looked like an aftermarket fork with about 4" or more of steer tube sticking up above the top tube (with spacers around it bien sur). The guy said he had about 5'000 kms on it with that setup and no problems yet but I was a little skeptical about the safety of such a long section of steer tube above the head tube. Has anyone here seen a similar setup that worked well and had more miles on it?
Also, does anyone here know of a LHT owner with crank arms longer than 175mm? I prefer longer cranks and want to know if it's possible to put longer ones on without affecting the clearance in turns too much.
Thanks in advance for the info
