Opinions sought on this frame

Hello all, I posted this on the Fit forum but got no replies so I'll try here. I am including a blueprint of the frame to click on.

I'm 6'5 230 lbs with a long back. This frame may be available to me soon and I'd really like to build a road bike up from scratch, something I have not done yet.

I prefer a long top tube and a larger frame in general, but have never tried a 66cm tt. Do you think this would be too much of a stretch for general road riding?

Just curious what others think, don't be afraid to offend! :~)

Thanks, MK
