Ultra agrees with giordana... but doesnt mean it cant be done because it can be done the problem is that the fit will look weird, tiny guy in giant frame.

With some riders, they wont notice the way a bike handles correctly and they dont care if the frame is too big. The other issue is angles, a big frame in a small guy will handle weird but if the thing is lets say a classic 75 degrees italian bike probably the dude wont notice anything but do the same in a colnago c50 the bike will handle horrible,

So it depends of the bike aswell... For example the OP mentioned a lot of extra seat tube in the new frame but same top tube, I say... try it it could work just fine... but put me in that same frame and i will end up putting my legs between the frame to be able to pedal.
