Im in the process of buying a nice road bike, I have about $2500 to spend, and want something nice, that will last for a bit. My choices per se are limited, as we all know, most of the major bike mfr's dont make bikes in our size, Im 6 ft 6, and 235-240.
Ive found: Cannondale/Canyon/Colnago/Specialized are about the only ones who do make bikes in size 63/64, infact Colnago and Canyon go up to size 65/66. I like Felt bikes, but they just dont make 'em in "clyde size". I do have my eye on a sweet looking Colnago(C59 Italia 150th/C59 Italia), but wanted to get some advice from someone here if they own one?
Problem w/Canyon is, they dont ship to the US anymore(unless thats recently changed)
My question is(I know it sounds stupid, so pardon me if it does sound that way) anyone here have any first hand experience, or own one of these machines, that wouldnt mind offering up some suggestions/experiences with any of them?
I would imagine I'd also need a stronger wheelset? Sometimes i wish I was smaller.
Any suggestions/advice/opinions are welcome, and I appreciate it.
