    I'd say get the bike you want, and budget extra money for a new rear wheel - the front one is likely to be fine. I'll also echo the recommendation for finding a bike that can take 28mm tires.

    I'd contact these folks: zinncycles.com. They specialize in custom frames for tall or unusually proportioned riders, and might have advice for you that doesn't require building a custom frame.

    Thanks for the replies. I agree that using evaporative cooling will give me a lot of options. I think I will order one of those MiraCool bandannas.

    I typically wear a headsweats skull cap and PI arm coolers on hot rides for sunburn protection. I guess pouring more water on them more frequently would be something I could do.

    Casual riding pants with a gusseted crotch?

    Don't get me wrong, I get all lycra'ed up when going on long rides, but a lot of my riding is also running errands around town, going places by bike, etc. I've found I will absolutely destroy the...
