I have also heard that some bikes will simply be a 'no-go' for very tall people like myself because of the geometry of the frame. Any truth in this?

Money is no issue.

I would strongly recommend you get some seat time on some rental bikes at a resort. This will help you figure out what type of riding you want to be doing (and if you actually like it) and get a feel for what you need/want in a bike.
