When it's so big it just looks stupid. Glad i'm not 2m+++


You'd need to 2.5m+ for that badger!

I'm a whisker shy of 2m and happily ride 19" frames all day long!

...because it's big. I had to give up my Bonty because I ( eventually ) realised I looked ridiculous on it ( 6'6" ). That's why I'm riding my 22" Karate Monkey nowaday.
I'd like to say though that I keep my retro credentials by running thumbies and also riding an '88 Longstaff with barcons and a white Roll saddle.

The overseas made Team Chance only says "Team Chance" on the downtube

That has tapered stays and no powerdomes

The seattube reaches way higher above the toptube

etc

I would if it wasn't for the fact that that's just how the Monkey feels! It's wonderful.
