Been getting a ton of calls in the last month or so for 22-23" TT frames. Most likley will add a 22" to start with.

Doesn't Crupi already offer something crazy like a 22.75 or 23 point something?

I rode a 21 back in the day, but have never felt more comfortable then I do on my current 22 top tube.

Yeah, but back in the day you ran the bars a few inches forward so it's actually more or less the same as with a longer TT and bars inline with fork.

There's only so big they can go. I feel stretched out with high-rise bars on a 21.5 sometimes....
Not sure I see the advantage of a 22in frame. I'm +6' too.

Unless you're Will Murray, then it makes sense.
DB not so much.

I dont run my bars inline with the fork. I use a level and run them perpendicular to the ground.

Probably has more to do with clip-shoes being used than people being bigger or how bars are ran.

I have a 22" TT Clayborn with a 63mm snap stem on the front. It feels nice and roomy, but I do love it.

My cruiser is a GHP 21.75 TT with a 63mm Snap Stem on it. And I have the bars slightly forward of parallel with the forks. Again, roomy but I likes.

I am 6'-1", mostly legs and gut.
