    I disagree - even a 28" production frame will be too small for anyone over 6'9". Kid would need a custom for sure to be comfortable (not saying that's an option).

    Try disassembling it and putting it back together in different configurations. I'm almost certain that one of the positions will give you the proper travel.

    Campagnolo parts id request

    I'm not very familiar with Campagnolo so I could use a hand in identifying these, namely the cranks. The calipers are Gran Sport I'm guessing. The rear hub has an 8 speed cassette.

    I don't think you're measuring your cycling inseam correctly - that seat height on the Gazelle looks like something I would have (38.25" inseam here).

    Is your seat at the right height? If you're 6'5" with long legs then it should probably be at least a couple inches higher.

    While I agree with your evaluation, the yellow $50 Mikkelsen on ebay had a 63cm top tube. OP's 58cm top tubed one is rideable by a much higher percentage of the population.
