Looks like it should be in a circus act. I can't see how that could be ridden. Play B'ball instead of cycling.
You probably wouldn't want to say that to the owners face. nmKristin

Maybe if I had a step stool or something else to stand on. But, otherwise I doubt it.

There's a guy in my club who's 6'3" and has a 64cm frame. Fits him very well. I'm only an inch shorter and it would probably fit me.
I have doubtsishmael

It's for real...ColnagoFE

The builder Lennard Zinn is from Boulder, CO. He specializes in custom bikes for tall people. I think he's 6'6" himself. Fromt the website:

Zinn Cycles can build a custom bike for you regardless if you're large or small. The bike on this page was built for Chicago Bulls coach and former star Bill Cartwright. He's seven feet tall and you can see we were still able to build him a bike! His titanium frame is 72 cm X 66 cm equipped with Campagnolo Record 10-speed with 210mm Zinn custom triple crank.

So if we can build a bike for Coach Cartwright, we can build one for you -whether you're large or small. Browse our site and find the bike that's just right for you! And remember that we not only build frames but we can sell you components, including custom cranks, too.
$6k for that puppy according to site pricing! (nm)ColnagoFE
