    XL Carbon CX frame?
    Do any of the newer carbon CX frames come with a 59.5 or 60cm top-tube? I am looking for something with a similar geometry to my 2009 Cannondale CX9 with 60cm top-tube 60cm seat-tube and 200mm headtube. Is there anything that large in carbon with a good ride?

    Ryan Trebon is 6'5" and riding a custom Super X. The biggest production Super X has a 59 cm top tube. That's longer than the Ibis Hakkalugi.

    Check out Van Dessel, Raleigh, Felt, Scott, Fondriest, Look, Norco, Colnago, Trek, etc.

    or get a custom built Ti. bike.

    or buy a beat up bike from Ryan in a month. :D

    If no one helps you can contact him yourself through Facebook or Twitter or Cyclocrossworld. There's a tall guy that I sometimes ride with and he has Trebon's or Barry Wicks old Kona bike. It's a longshot but worth trying.

    I haven't a clue. I looked for a while and couldn't find anything. I'm 6'5". I ended up going with a Warbird Ti. Fits my riding style better than carbon anyways.

    What gives
    I was wondering the same, even the labeled XL's are really only L in my book.
    I have been eyeballing the Ritte Crossberg at speedgoat clearance, looks awesome and a great price, but their XL only has a 58cm effective top tube. The XL On One Dirty Disco Carbon has a 57.5 cm EFT. It can't be a strength issue as they are making XL carbon hard tail 29ers with 64 cm EFT's.

    According to the spesh website, the EFT of the 61cm crux is only 58.7 cm

    The Kona Major Jake could be worth looking at.

    I have a 61cm Trek Cronus Carbon Cx bike. It is for sale locally and would be happy to post it on mtbr if anyone is interested. I wont sell it unless I purchase a classified ad here first.

    my carbon Specialized tricross xxl 61cm has an actual tt (c to c) of appx. 58cm, so it looks like you can rule-out specialized.

    You should check out the Felt 'cross bikes. They've got similar geo to your Cannondale.
