Looks like unicycle people had been using this size for a while...

This dude needs to build road or cx disc stuff now... the end of the super big front tube era?

I bet that Serotta wobbles real bad at high speed.

Absolutely.

Hi and thanks all for the comments on the big 36er bikes for tall. We've developed a real Road version for us tall, see the pic attached. It's a size M DirtySixer for riders from 6'9" to 7'1". The MTB version on the left is a size S for rider riders from 6'5" up to 6'9".
Hope we can get all the tall and very tall riders on proportionate bikes, the DirtySixer! :-P

Clean69er pal, very good of you to cater to our tall pals. I think the bikes on that picture needs some kind of reference point. They looked like normal bikes.

As a short guy with tall guy friends, that is awesome.

Sure, you and I would have to look up to see the saddles.

Nice bikes by the way and long overdue for taller riders. I never understood why we had to shoehorn tall riders onto bikes with small wheels and short cranks.

Thanks for the warm words.
For comparaison I have this pic of a DirtySixer size L with one of our 7f customer, our engineer, fabricator and owner of Ventana bikes, Sherwood at 5'8" (maybe?) and myself at 6'6"...

Those bikes look great. I've always thought huge, oversized frames look bad with conventional setups. These bikes look like they would ride and handle as well as the smaller versions.

Look at the bars on the yellow bike.

Drafting someone on one of those bikes has to be the best thing ever.

Thanks! They are designed and engineered to handle even better than the regular sized bikes: we take into consideration the overall bigger body and higher center of gravity and bigger challenges. The handling is safer and more predictable than any other 700c (or 29er) bikes that are adapted to tall riders.

These bars make so much sense here.

Yes I contacted Matt from Crust but I believe they must be away riding since I haven't got an answer after his initial response end of January. I like the width but the 25.4mm isn't going to be great for us with big hands. It's like grabbing a chopsticks... I have been using 48cm c-to-c from Kuosac. It's a lot of money to come up with our ideal drop bar design...
