Fitting 6"7"

I am 6"7" tall thinking about buying a trainer bike with 62 CM frame, Are there any other riders, who are 6"7"using 62 cm frame? When shopping on line I cannot seem to find frames larger than 62 cm. The bike I am looking at are on Bikes Direct com. Has anyone purchase from Bikes Direct. They seem to have good prices, but these are not brand names bikes. Like I said this mainly be used as a trainer bike on my cycle ops.

Specialized Roubaix's come in 64cm, Trek Domane comes in 63cm, you also may look into getting a custom frame. I'm 6'4" and ride a 61, but I could ride a 63cm.

Get a set of resistance rollers and ride your road bike on them. Solved, less expensive, and ride with your road fit.

Consider a direct drive smart trainer and use a bike you already have?
