    To behold you riding in such a manner would be terrifying, and I would cower in fear.

    This does not make me any less of a man.
    Bill Walton is an avid cyclist... if a 6'7 cyclist scares you, imagine what he would be like...lol.

    I know there are some mid level and higher end bikes for tall people (Im 6'5), but what I have been trying to find are low end road bikes, the under a grand variety.. not much luck other then Bikes Direct, who carry a bunch of 64cm bikes.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Would you be able to post some pictures? Thanks.

    In the recumbent world, "tallest" doesn't apply, but the dual-700c M5 Carbon Highracer has a MINIMUM rated inseam length of 34". Mine works fine for me at 31", with only slight modifications. Nonetheless, it is designed for taller persons.

    Trek would be happy to take your money. Many of the men's models seem to *only* go up to 62cm, but some of the Madones go to 64, and some of the Emondas come in 64cm too.

    edit - KHS has the "747" which comes in 64 and 66cm! Trek 1.5 64cm, Felt F75X cyclocross bike can be 63cm
