Hi,

I am trying to bargain on the following bike:

Seoul be 100% original, but, being a newbie of vintage bikes, I simply don't understand the sites: the seller salt it is a 18", I am 178 cm tall. Should it suit me?

Cheers!

should be ok, i'm slightly shorter than you and rode 18" frames BITD.

Now moved on to Medium/17.5" as the geometry is all over the place compared to the 90s!

Remember, that Scott measures sizes then from center of bottom bracket to center of top tube (not to the end of seat tube as lot of other brands!)
So, Scott's 18" will be a bit bigger than 18" in some of other brands
I'm 176 and half of my life I used Scott's 17,5", so I guess Scott's 18" will fits for You, but that's definitly largest Scott size You should look for
