    Want to see Sasquatch on a fixed gear?

    Well, if you do, i need your help. I'm 6'7" with a 37inch inseam (my torso and arms are normal length i would say)

    Am i limited to only the largest of bike frames like 64cm+ or might a 62cm be alright?

    I will be using the bike for messing around and commuting up to 5 miles one way.

    ATM im leaning toward one of the complete bikes direct bikes or one of their frames from bike island and building that up (i wench on my 22" framed SS mountain bike converstion)

    Thank-you for any help you can offer

    I've got an old 62cm steel Raleigh hanging out in my garage that I'm looking to part ways with. It needs new cables and a new rear rim (perfect time for an upgrade to fixed, perhaps?). The frame is a bit rusty, but the bike could be yours for the low, low price of "whatever it takes to get UPS to bring it to you." PM me if you would like pictures.

    Huge bikes look awesome, I came across this picture of an Indy Fab bike and favorited it because it just looked so cool, this is probably what somebody the size of the OP rides when they get proffesionally sized up.

    I'm 6'6" and ride a 22.5" mtb and a 24" road bike (it's an early Trek hence the inches- equivalent to 61-62cm).

    I'm needing a new seatpost for the road bike but aside from that it fits pretty well. The largest I'll go will be 63cm... any bigger than that looks hideous.

    I'm also 6'7", and I ride a 63cm Kilo TT. I just got it, and have ridden at least 20mi a day for the past 4 days without any discomfort. Good luck man, I know how hard it is to find bikes/shoes/pants/etc.

    i'm 6'5 with a 36" inseam and i rode a 60cm kilo for a while and it was fine. now i'm on a 61cm concept, it's great. my brother is 6'7 with a 35/6" inseam and he rides a 64cm trek commuter. the thing is huge.

    6'6" with a 36" inseam, and I ride a 62cm Cross Check. The seat's hiked up a bit, and I put a taller rise stem than what comes stock on the Complete (which is what I bought), but other than that it all fits great. Comfortable enough that I did a double century on it earlier this month.

    My fixed gear is a 58cm and is far too small for me, but the frame was free so I'm making due with it for now. Seriously hiked up seatpost, adjustable rise stem, looks goofy as hell but it works. I plan on swapping components to a 62cm IRO frame in the future.

    Thanks for all the help guys...I know the cycling purist's will smite me for saying this, but i started up this thread because i don't want my bike to look like the one posted earlier in the tread, If i looked like Bill while riding, i think i would have to give it up. I'm sure any bike that would be big enough for me will look like it has kiddy wheels on it and probably have a foot long head tube, but i want to limit that as much as possible. Any of you monsters out there have a pic of their large bikes? If you have one with you riding it, all the better.

    62cm Surly Cross-Check


    58cm PDG Series-5 (too small for me, that's why the stem looks so weird)

    Hey guys this is my first post. I found this thread to be appealing since I am 6'5 myself with a 37' inseam. I ride a 64 frame. I'm debating whether or not it's worth going to a shop to get sized up. For the most part the bike is pretty comfortable, it's just a little wobbly when I sprint. I already had a close call (smacked my head a couple weeks ago and taco'd the front wheel) Here are some pictures.

    Ah I'm afraid that my top tube length is too short. I used a fit calculator and it gave me measurements for the correct size of a top tube id need. When measuring the top tube does one just measure from where the tube has been welded to the head tube and the seat stays, or include them in the measurement?

    the wobbly sprints may just be the geo.
