I'm not sure about the long femur bit.Sale details on ebay for 54 cm Spa tourer
Medium Size. I'm 5ft 10 with inside leg 31 inches and is shown set up for those dimensions. Could suit someone a little taller or smaller. 54cm frame.
I'm 5ft 10 with inside leg 34 inches so you can see the problem. I mention the femur because I'm guessing that a long leg would simply involve raising the saddle but a long femur involves moving the saddle back, a trickier proposition with the obvious effect on handlebar position.
Longer cranks must partly sort that, along with a shorter stem. I have a 70mm stem on one bike and steering feels fine. Have you got big feet too?
