WTB: Anywhere. High quality steel frame. 60-62cm

Postby lunar_c » Wed Jan 23, 2013 8:12 am

Hi all,

I'm putting the feelers out again for a new frame. I'm interested in something Italian/European in a 60-62cm size in high quality steel. Will also consider Asian stuff if its a high quality tubeset.

Kind regards,
Ben

Tell me about it :lol:

I have a few that I'm sure you'd like, but not looking to sell :x

Keep an eye on eBay, every now and then decent stuff pops up, abducted being taller reduces the competition a bit. I got a NOS merkcx corsa extra for $400 landed :shock:

Being short isn't great either. I got tired of trying to find the right sized steel frame secondhand and ended up buying new.

Would 58 be to small?

I'd agree on the ebay front, I've seen larger frames go for reasonable prices. The only thing I've got in your size is n o old custom tourer. Not what you're looking for though:)

60-62 cm style frame is not that big. I'm 5"10 and comfortably fit a 24" frame with 11cm plus saddle sticking out of the top tube.

Also have you got anything against a good quality Aussie built frame. I'd have one of them over a Euro anytime. European stuff is overrated.

You must have long legs! I'm 6ft and find that a 58/9 fits me best, otherwise standover height is getting too close for comfort :)

Have you tried LFGSS? Seems to be a stack of stuff coming out of Holland, you might get one shipped for a reasonable price. Give you some unique style points too. I was looking at a 62cm Columbus Cromor Jan Janssen that would've cost me A$500 to land here. Pretty reasonable, I thought.

the price is silly, but something like this in your size is a rarity one would think! maybe have a chat to him, sweet talk him/her to a more reasonble price!

local too!

I've got a 61 cm Miyata 1400 Alumitech with Shimano 105 gruppo, I might pass on.

We need to start a club with some rules. I've seen you guys snaffle frames that I liked before. Conversely, I've gotten frames from some of you.

Don't have a spare frame that I'm willing to give up at the moment, sorry.

I think I tried to start a BNA Tall Guys (and Girls) Club...didn't get far.

Cast that net far and wide for something. Email Andy at Fyxo, he's always got something. Had a NOS 531C Gazelle CM AA on eBay recently that was really nice.

Fyxo has a 61cm Magni on ebay at the moment This is a frame I bought in London and restored before onselling to Andy. The decals were an absolutely faithful reproduction of the originals by Cyclomondo for this frame, and I have photos of the frame as it was before and after the restoration. It is a lovely ride and quite stiff with the SPX tubing.

careening OT, but I *really* wish this forum had a more digest form of thread subscription, particularly like bikeforums.net. Just getting one e-mail until you then go an read the thread is a bit crap. You tend to lose interest rapidy when most of the updates are just off the cuff remarks or there's a wave of semantic pi55 fighting over something inane. It either kills the thread or you've long forgotten it even if it has revived.
