WTB - Brisbane - A bike for a tall fellow

Postby Wazza » Wed Mar 18, 2009 10:28 am

Hi all,
A friend of mine has just broken his old bike and he is looking to replace it. He is 6'4'' 90kg and according to the bike fit calculator he will required a 62cm frame. Does anyone out there have something to suit?
1. A complete bike
2. Frame composition - not concerned however good quality and good presenation required
3. STi shifters preferred but DT shifters OK
4. 7 speed upwards
5. Up to $500
He commutes to work and he is joining me on a charity bike ride (5 days - ~400Ks) after Easter so he is looking to be on the bike in the next 2 weeks so he can settle in.
Thanks in advance

Wazza, I'm on the Gold Coast and have a really nice Carbon Fibre Giant for sale.

I'll bump it.

And 49cm is a long way from 53, but my wife rides a 49 and at the end of the day, it's the distance from the handlebars to the saddle to the pedals that matters. In my wife's case all those dimensions fit the calculator's prescriptions even though the frame's much smaller.

Only difference between two frames with the same hbars-saddle-bb dimensions is the smaller frame would be a bit lighter and stiffer

Nooooice bike :drool: Good to see you had the forethought to take the photos not dressed in the nude, (now where's that ebay kettle ad pic when u need it.....?) though those cable ends are looking a bit nude & frayed.... :roll: :wink:

My 62cm frame will be listed on 'you know where' after 9pm tonight (120394185758)
