6'3" here, I also find LG bibs to be a good fit. I ordered and returned a few different brands before I finally settled on LG. Wish I had just gone to a LBS and saved the hassle of trial and error.

It could have been real simple for the LBS. Remove fork, measure twice, cut once, PROFIT and possibly earn a new customer.

Amen, I am so sick of this entire "craft beer" gimmick. I like my beer to taste like beer. I want it to be cheap and cold.

While at HD getting PVC you could have picked up some threaded rod and washers and made your self a headset press. I still have mine from 15 or so years ago, always worked great for me.

That MASI for 250 is a decent price. Modern MASI has some good offerings. The Coltello was a great frame not sure if it is still available or not.

Can't compare a vintage Paramount to a mass produced modern lugged complete bike for $650. The paramount would be closer to a Bob Jackson in terms of $$$ or quality.

You look cramped on the bike, a longer stem and some hoods should stretch you out a little. The hoods will also give you a better hand position for climbing.
