I've recently got fixated on getting my boyhood dream of a Raleigh Team (replica), preferably in 531.
I know that times change, but I'm looking for a top tube length of 58cm or greater (on a seat tube of 60cm cc preferably, assuming a 73 deg seat tube angle). In the ideal world, I want a bike set up to the same dimensions as my main bikes. I don't think I've found a frame with a top tube greater than 57cm (with any length seat tube).
Should I keep looking, biding my time, for a longer top tubed frame, or should I accept that the older geometry had shorter top tubes and 'make do' with a 57cm top tube.
Thoughts, advice, welcomed.
Thanks in advance,
