The rest of the measurements don't really matter as for someone of your size, they aren't critical.
The seat tube measurement is important, too.


I am 6'7", as well, and have a heck of a time finding a bike that fits (without needing a 3' long seat post, haha). I've had the best results with the used market, finding some old steel in 64cm. That works for me, mostly, though a 66 or 68cm would really be more of a proper fit in a standard road bike.
Depending on your inseam, you may need to order a frame. I've found that almost none of the regular new bike market (Trek, Giant, etc) has much bigger than 60cm, maybe some 62cm here and there.
