This is a custom bike we built for a guy who is 7' tall with a 40" inseam. Sometimes when we build bikes for really big customers, their bikes take on a new life/look which can differ quite significantly from our original concept and what most people consider "normal".

If you were 7'/40" you would probably think a "normal" sized bike looked funny when you could stand flat footed over the top of the saddle at full extension and could flex the BB side to side by a few inches with every pedal stroke due to the power of your looong quads.

Looks like a bike to me. At least people like sherwood are willing to take on special projects for taller individuals, after all we are not all the same size so why should there only be one size of bike.
Size is one thing, massive downtube combined with X-bracing, triple-clamp fork, plus all-black to boot adds up to one raucous-looking beast. Props to Sherwood as always.
