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.

I like the idea .. Now which area of the forum would it belong??

For the record I'm 195.5cm tall with quite long legs. I am currently riding a Ricardo Nuovo 60cm TT / 62cm ST with a 100mm stem and 400mm seat post. I am comfortable on it but really looking for something a bit nicer.

Cheers,
Ben

Both those gazelles are nice man. Unfortunately the wedding has creeped up (9wks away) and I've been told I had to wait until afterwards to get a new frame.

I just bought her a Greg Lemond Zurich in Reynolds 853 (1546gm for her size 48 ST/50 TT) as her wedding present. Its built up with Tiagra 10spd now. After the wedding I'm going to build her some 1400gm wheels to suit. On our first anniversary I might upgrade her to Ultegra. I LOVE having a partner who's into bikes :) she loves retro steel but he's also got the weight weenie bug. Yay! :)

64cm...c/t or c/c, doesn't really matter...it's big!

That's two frames I've seen now with 62cm ST's and short <60cm TT's. bizarre! Thanks for the suggestion but I need a longer TT .. Or a 180mm stem!

I ride two bikes with 62cm ST 58cm TT using 120mm stems. Fits me fine but maybe I'm deformed.

All of my bikes have the same TT size, but differing seat tube sizes, from 59 up to 62. With enough seat tube, anything is possible, provided it fits you in the forward direction.

I have a from memory 60cm square frame, Kerry Hopkins Reynolds 731OS tubing. Mixture of Campagnalo Chorus and Shimano 600 components, built around 1992.

Contact me on dowrie@optusnet.com.au if you are interested and I can get you some photos and more info. I am in Brisbane.
