There are a handful of manufacturers that are making XL and XXL bikes with long reach and toptube lengths.  This can sometimes allow  for a very tall cyclist to avoid the need for a custom frame and still be able to get a semi proper fit. You will still likely have a lot of seat post showing and need high stacks and riser bars.

Kona and Specialized are two manufactures that make frames with longer reach that I’ve had some experience with.

If / when you decide to go custom, I have had very good luck with Ventana USA. Tell them Big Rob sent you!
