Can I start this off in another direction? Why would any builder make a 62cm frame with such a short 57.5 top tube. Is it me or should it be longer. Hell with my legs and arms I could ride this frame but they do not make a stem long enough for me, not that I would want to ride a stem that long. Steven

Okay here's the deal... we take your example of a late '80s Masi made in San Marcos California lugged steel frame and put on more modern equipment... say carbon ergo Campagnolo 20 speed stuff (hey, I like current stuff too) just as an example of course.

Strikes me as more than a little silly, but then again, that's just me.
