About a decade ago, I had almost the opposite scenario.

6'4" here. My first decent bike was a 25", then 63cm, and a couple more in the 62-63cm range. I put in a lowball bid on a 62cm titanium...

I am failing at finding a better image of it, but if you're talking about wacky TT bikes, you have to include Rory O'Reilly's custom Mike Celmins. Massively dropped top tube, super-extended seat...

Do all three fit tires of the same size? ...

I have one in candy apple red, or some shade more like a late 60's hotrod. Bought the frame new on closeout when Schwinn was going out of business in the early 90's. It doesn't have any number on...
