Well where to start????
Ive been looking for a touring/Sportif bike for the last few months and have come up blank as to finding something that fit's my stupid body.. I have a long torso, short legs and arms
I dont look out of proportion but I am lol....
Problem I am having is with toptube lengh regards to frame sizing, im around a 52-54 frame size my inseam is around 28" but im finding that toptube lenghs on modern stuff in a 54 frame will give me a 55-56 top tube... I really need something in the area of 52.5 or 53 and work a stem around that... Most frames with a toptube lengh in the size I need will be like a 49
So is there any frames that people could think of that would give me something like a 54 frame with a 53 toptube that will float around in the retro arena??
Its going to be built up with modern ish kit and I may even go with STI levers but this isnt set instone... And yes I know bar end shifters for reliablity etc etc but fancy a change
