:idea: With all these super tall people, I'm wondering why they don't invent another wheel standard like 750 or 800c...

Well I just realized that I never have posted pictures of my bike before on this forum.
Guys I am sorry for that.

These are outdated photos from 2006 in May.

Currently I am re-building this GIOS frame with a few new parts (pictures and build list will be posted in a few weeks time).

It is a GIOS new carbon ultra 2006
-Center/center this frame is 58cm and center/top it is 62 cm.
-Cranks on this bike are 180mm (Aluminium Specialites TA Carmina because in 2006 no-one produced 180mm carbon cranks)
-Pedal axle to saddle deck is 101,5cm (My length is 190cm and my inseam is 93cm)

OsvoldJ,

Tell me why back to shorter 177,5?

Judging your bike I conclude you do have fairly long legs so my idea would be keep 180mm or even switch to 185 mm (which would be my ideal length).

But this is just based on seeing your bike. I haven’t seen you on the bike neither do I know your measurements.

P.S.
Yeah! The beautiful GIOS Blue….. but not always.
In the 70 & 80’s the GIOS Torino came in white, red and black too.
But the GIOS blue is still their trademark.

By the way guys I would have liked my 2006 GIOS New Carbon Ultra in Blue but it never has been available in different colour scheme than transparent (at GIOS they concluded that it is easier to sell a carbon fibre frame when carbon is visible).

The 2005 was blue but I didn’t like the star in clear coat so I went for the 2006 and actually I like it! The 2005 is also out of a different type of carbon (that is what they told me at GIOS though I doubt this).
My bike is Italian so it is Nervosa and of course has Anorexia I like them thin!

First post!

64 Canyon Ultimate CF Pro, 2008 model. Just got it built up before the weekend. The frame geometry seems fairly balanced for such a big frame – only the wheels are a bit off, proportionally... No weight on the assembly yet, though. Those training wheels (aksiums) put about 1900g to it, so an easy 400g shave for the weekend racing there.[/img]
