Don't worry about the ability of aluminum to handle your weight and strength. It is reknown for being stiff, too stiff for some lesser riders. I'm not far off your measurements at 6'5", but more like 275 lbs. More important is your cycling inseam(from floor to top of book pressed firmly upward into crotch). Mine is 37" or so and I'm riding on a 63cm cannondale frame, equiped with a 140mm stem, 180 cranks and an extra long thomson seat post. I've got a fair bit of seat post exposed but with the stem flipped up, the bar drop is just about perfect for me.
If I were in your position I would scour ebay and craigslist until what I really wanted, showed up. If you're sure that you need a 66cm then I would keep looking. They do show up from time to time and usually don't bring much because of the small market for them.
Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
