In 1972 I was a bit shorter and still growing. At my peak I was 6' 4" and I've lost about an inch. I rode 62s for many years and 2 years ago got a 63 cm frame that I like very much. French fit, to be sure. The Peugeot is way too small but I made it work, and in my mentor's honor I commuted on it for a couple of seasons. It never felt too small under me. Moving forward it will probably be more of a guest bike at our upstate house.
