(a) you built an electric bike with a downtube full of battery 7 years ago? (b) yeah they only offer the two sizes, seems like taking a chance on fit. They have a video showing a 6'6" rider, which of course can only be showing a guy successfully not falling off of a too-small-bike with a long seatpost
