Try - get a different bike - try again

The title says what I know to work. If you have long legs and long arms, any bike that is less than 60cm (c-c) is not for you. I am 6'3" and have 36" arms (long sleve shirt) and 34+ inseam. I have had to get on bikes that have 70, 68.5 and 68 cm c-c frames. Seem weird to others - works for me.

I had two thoughts when I first saw the Tacx Magnum:

1.) I want!
2.) Fitters should use this.

EDIT: Nevermind! *

* North Americans can expect a price point around $9,300 and will have to wait patiently for its release.
