Salsa El Santo?

Alright, im thinking about getting a Salsa El Santo and building the frame up myself over some time here. Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on it one way or the other. Im a tall guy (6-4) and the largest size has a top tube that is actually long enough for me to like... Any info or opinions would be great.

Just be careful about the standover height on that frame. I know a couple people that have built them up and then been unable to ride them because they didn't have any, or enough crotch clearance. Being as tall as you are you probably won't have any trouble, but still check and make sure.
