I can see that from the camera angle vantage point... it feels like I'm looking at your bike while standing on chair! :lol: :lol:

I can post a pic of my 61 c-c (65 c-t) bike next week... :)

Already posted in another thread, but it is a 62cm TREK frame, so I think it suits this thread well too ;-)

I was finally able to take a picture of the XXL bike in my fleet.
It's a 61cm Leader, measuring 65cm centre-top, with mostly Ultegra parts... Matching control tech 130mm stem, 44cm bar & looong post.

Image

I had to purchase it especially for the Dutchies that visit... According to Wikipedia, the average height of men between 20 and 30 years old is now 184.8cm in the Netherlands! :shock:

As it is, it measures 94cm from the top of the saddle (at the middle) to the BB centre. With a 40cm pro post and a different saddle (which are currently on another bike), it could easily go to 100cm! :lol: :lol: :lol: (but then I fear the handlebars would be way too low for anyone riding it); as it is, the fork has an uncut steerer tube.

The height from the floor to the top of the saddle is 118cm as pictured. :twisted:

It was built for people like this client, or anyone else around 195 +/-5cm tall. :wink:

That length is actually quite normal here in Holland. I'm 1m88 tall and thats by far not tall compared to some guys I know.. I think I average quite good compared to people in my age-class.. Women seem to be taller here as well I guess.. Around 1m70-1m75

Heres my bikes (all outdated again.. need to shoot some new pics!)

TT (59 cm)

got a 9 cm WCS Carbon stem on it now, and would really like to get a HED Jet90 frontwheel..

Road (61 cm)
Image
Image
Also has some Ksyriums SL in it often..

Mountain (XL)
Image
Cables are mounted yet and woodman chupa carbons without logo's mounted, and image looks crappy cause its been taken indoors..

Training/Race (61 cm)
Image
Has a Ritchey Pro Carbon fork and seatpost, aluminium handlebar and stem from Ritchey Pro as well.. Frame is going to be painted black in the oncoming weeks as well
