    Cannondale sells a CAAD 5 in 66 cm. The frame and fork are 465$.

    I'm 6"6" and I just bought a Specialized Roubaix 64cm and it fits very well.

    Some of the vintage bikes have tall geometries. You might ask on that board and see what is on craigslist/ebay. Even though you said mass produced you might also contact a frame builder anyway, they might have a suggestion or good price. Dare I suggest a folding bike for someone who wants to adjust the geometry?
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.

    Many years ago I had a 27" Panasonic bike, which I destroyed because it just couldn't handle my weight. When I sold it the only things original were the handle bars and the brakes. Even the frame was replaced because of a crack. Be careful of a used mass produced bike.

    I replaced it with a 27" Cannondale ST600 18 years ago. I am still riding it. Maybe you could find an ST600 used.

    Update: I have found the tallest bicycle ever. Panasonic Deluxe 2000 claims to have frame sizes of 28". This may just be the way they are measuring however.

    Here's a 69 cm mid-80s Raleigh Marathon for sale. He's a good bike guy; takes good care of his stuff. Arizona might be a bit far for you though.

    I have a Marathon (25"/63 cm). A little heavy, a little low-end really, yet it runs flawlessly and is a pleasure to ride.

    I actually had two 27 inch Nishikis roll through our shop this summer and being Nishikis they were very nice bikes... we had no problem finding new homes for these as we keep a list of folks who are looking for unusually sized bikes be they very tall, very big, or very short.

    Hey, thats me!

    Tall frames are hard to come by. But 27" in particular do turn up every now and again. Now, anything taller than that and it could be a long wait.

    I have had better luck finding tall old road frames than tall old MTB frames, btw. Up to 22" is easy. But more than that is difficult to find, in my experience.

    1988 Cannondale ST400 came in a 69cm (68.58 to be exact) I bought mine new and had to replace the rear wheel (went out of true every 10 miles or so - not much fun having to tune your wheel on a group ride!!). Just finished cleaning it up and putting on some some cool daddy Bontragers with nice sidewalls.
    I'm 6'8" and 220 - rides like a charm.

    Just a general observation in a General Cycling forum, if you have a gigantonormous frame and then have the seat post shoved way down into the seat tube, you probably don't need the gigantonormous frame to begin with. Just saying.

    I was once told that only _ussies needed lower than 42/21 gearing.

    I have a cannondale touring hike from about 1986 or so that I am selling. It measures out at about 27" center to center. I would sell the frameset or the whole bike if you are interested. It is in northern michigan, but I am willing to ship it.

    Fuji made 27" frames in several models, including my '82 Supreme that I just got through re-habing after sitting in storage for 10+ years. This was a very reasonably priced bike, which I needed on my college student budget....she's a tall drink of water.

    Well, since this thread was started in 2008, I think the OP must have found something by now...

    And being he was from the Cleveland OH area, there have been a bunch of 25" amd taller bikes on Craigslist since then. I know I've posted a few of the links in the 'Craigslist finds' thread in the C&V section of these forums...

    Oh well, at least they looked for a past post, rather than think they were the first person to ever have the question .

    Curious if your 27" Cannondale is still for sale?
