Hi guys,
basically I'm standing at 6ft, but am mostly legs (35 inseam). I'm looking for a frame currently, preferably aero-style, but it's quite frustrating to see them being all so low. Anyone have any suggestions or experiences to share?

Buy the new S3, much improved ride quality with "R" styled seat stays and like bikewithnoname said, tall headtubes. You even get 400mm aero posts if necessary but you won't need it.

Cervelo S, Madone H2, and if you want to go crazy, Parlee ESX tall are all good options. See my stack reach thread in chat.
