Tried the Emonda; geo works but I didn't like the bike.

I would look into TREK's H2 Geometry.

The EMONDA SLR, SL or ALR might work very well for you.

Best of luck!
What didn't you like?

Front end felt soft(er) than I prefer. It also ran like sh*t as it was poorly tuned. I can look past that but it didn'l help.

First world problems.

I am having a hard time finding off the shelf disc frames that offer enough height in the front end that don't have correlating gorilla reach. Would be appreciative of any suggestions for (ideally) 620-630 ish stack frames that keep the reach to 39-41.

I tried the RoadMachine 01. Nice bike but the front end felt flexy. I assumed it was the flattened steerer that was not as rigid as full round. Not much else to try. I was thinking custom but I can't get into a decent build for <$7.5k and I was 'trying' to keep the budget closer to $6k.

Am I stuck w/Canyon?
What's your current bike? Ridden a RM01 for a while, nothing flexy about it.

FWIW, the reach on Colnagos is on the shorter side and they do sell a taller head tube option in the C64. A 56H size almost hits your numbers bang on. Reach is 392 and stack is 610. The tall headset topcap will add another 15mm to the stack.

Thanks for the tip.

The C64 would be a bit $$$ w/di2 and good wheels. Trying to stay closer to $6k.....well at least under $7k. Sad.

I love my C59. The C series bike are forever bikes. Unfortunately, I don't think you'll ever find an H sized frame sitting on a shelf anywhere so it would probably be a special order at full price. Still, the ride is lovely.
