A friend of my is always looking for a 80's 23inch/23.5inch Colnago road bike but never see's any in this size and the norm is usually no more than 22inch !
Why on earth is this ? Didn't the Italians ever eat their 'Greens'
or are all 23/23.5inch bikes hidden in sheds
The French seem to have a similar height/inside leg problem - I ride 175mm cranks, but whenever Sachs New Success or Mavic "starfish" chainsets come up on eBay they're always 172.5mm tops. Not much of a difference I know, but it would be nice to stick with 175s if I did do a swap (in more recent times TA and Stronglight seem to have been more generous to tall people).
