I was on eBay and came across this classic Schwinn World. Estimated 26.5 inch bike!!!

Can you imagine those big ole legs doing 110 rpm's? I kind of feel bad for the BB.

it doesn´t look much bigger than a more average size frame with a decent amount of seatpost showing.

Yeah, but imagine this bike with a normal amount of seatpost showing. Your arse and feet would be in different zip codes.

Big bike

[That bike's not all that big. I ride a 64 cm frame with a 62 cm top tube and that bike is only 64.77cm I'm 6' 7" tall, and a few years ago I started a ride and met a guy who was a head taller than me. He was riding a Waterford that had dual top tubes. I think it was around a 78 cm frameset. It did look pretty strange in proportion to the standard 700c wheels.
