    Some 64s are available.

    Specialized designs their 61cm bikes to fit riders from 6'3" to 6'6". How tall are you? They do make a some 64s. Unfortunately, there's only three models, the Secteur Elite, Roubaix Pro Disc Race, and Tarmac Expert.

    6'5" and all legs should fit reasonably on a 61 then. Longer legs need a smaller frame to get the correct top tube, and a tall seatpost.

    The 64cm is noticeably longer and taller. It's 11mm longer and 14mm taller than the 61. We just got a fit bike that we can set up as a 64 if the 61 doesn't work. We just got it a week ago and are still working on getting the kinks out.

    Thats very true.. I guess i really just need to take my actual measurements. I have a 61 (59cm tt) that i feel a little cramped on and a older 69(No exact measurement for TT but its longer than my 61) that i feel really comfortable on, although the seat-post is only raised a few inches.

    Thanks for the point though, I was definitely spacing on that fact
