I am lusting after an Evo-R. OK, I know about the fogging problems, but they have taken steps to deal with that. I hope.

But this lust is in vain if I can't fit in one. Any tall guys out there own or ride one?

I emailed them. Andreas, who I believe is the owner, got back promptly and said, basically, that it would be close.

My particulars:

Height: 6' 3.5" (1.92)
Inseam: 34" (86.4)
X-seam: 43" (109.22)
Long torso, average legs.

Thanks. Looks like another option is the DFXL.

They say it fits people up to 2.00m tall, just a shade under 6'7".

Both Theo and Allart from velomobiel.nl are taller than 190. Here is a blog post in dutch about an xl version with an 2cm higher lid(top part) It fits the blogposter who is 194cm with a double seatpad on the seat. And also a German rider of 204 cm, that has a Quest with extra toehumps. The orange one with two small humps on the front. The orange-white is the high one, the blue-white is the normal one.

Greetings, Jeroen

Looks like the Quattrovelo+ is for taller people. According to Bicycle Evolution, the plus size is for riders above 185cm (6' 1"). It has 2.5cm more space for knees, and 1.5cm more for toes.

I emailed the folks at Bicycle Evolution, who say the wait for one of these is now at about one year.
