The *one* time where I find myself wishing the head tube on a 55ish top tube'd frame was shorter! Oh well...

hahahah! Good one!

The custom frame was designed for someone who does not like to bend too much. If you can get your legs over the standover and the reach is OK, you should be fine on the frame.

If it were a 17-19cm head tube it’d be perfect, but over 20cm is too tall.

That bike/frame should look wonky by the numbers in my mind, but looks great!

There should be more which the fit could be appropriate among PL rider/non-racers that not I figure.

You are correct about looking at the numbers only. You have to take the angles into account and then it start to make a lot of sense.

The original intention was to build a road bike that does not require a big drop from seat to handlebar. See how it looks built up. Classy and comfortable and super light.

The build came up to 8.05kg as shown here. Almost no carbon what so ever.

Bringing this up for the Sunday crowd. Price has some flexibility. Such a nice frameset hanging out in my flat makes no sense.

I'm in the group that is wondering about the geometry. If you are 6'3" or thereabouts, with short legs, why in the world would you need a bike with such a short top tube? I get the seat tube and saddle height listed, but you should be riding a bike with much longer top tube I would think. I'm 5'7" and could actually ride this bike given the top tube, although there wouldn't be a lot of seat post showing and standover might be a bit painful if I had to stop suddenly. Are you running a 140 stem or something like that to compensate for the top tube?

Good questions!

The reason that for a "tall-ish" person this bike is interesting is if said tall person has a back problem and does not want/can not bend too much. The short TT allows you to sit pretty straight.

A shorter torso with long lets is just as well a great candidate for the bike. If you can handle the standover, this will be amazing bike.

That's the great thing about custom bikes after all.
