I've been watching the Randonee vs. Trek 520 thread with interest. The Randonee does seem like a good deal, and I've had good luck with REI products for the past 40+ years.
I'm 6'4", have a 35" inseam, and size 14 feet. I'm wondering if there are any other big guys out there who own a Randonee. How does it fit you? Is your seat way higher than your handlebars? Do your heels hit your panniers?

I am 6'05" w/ a 36" inseam and the largest Randonee was a good fit (only test rode it). I adjusted the saddle, bars etc... to try and match my custom road bike and it was almost spot on. I can't speak of heel clearance but I am sure you could use one of the Tubus racks to address it if it is an issue.
