From one tall guy (who has gone the route of trying to make off the rack bikes work) to another...go custom. Your body and performance will thank you in the long run.

The new bike looks like fits you a lot better than the look. Do you fell it similar to the cannondale? that cannondale fit is what you should be looking for.
