I can identify with large frames up to a certain point. I can ride a 62cm with no problem but a 63cm, for some reason, looks massive. John’s classic road bike was so big that Chris had to construct it from all downtubes. Not only does that give an increased stiffness, it makes for a nicely-proportioned bicycle. The Philly Bike Expo had many great bikes but this one just stood out above the rest. Mostly due to its size!
