I'm selling my Slingshot frame with a seat post, clamp, bb and front mech for £200.

I bought it off this site a few months ago, but I never finished building it. A new project means its up for sale. The seat post and clamp are original, the front mech is a Suntour XC Pro and the BB is in the frame, but is a bit clicky.

WAH I want this.

I think tho that 22.5 for a top tube is too short for me at 6' tho. Any opinions out there?

Jez,

I'm afraid the frame is a bit too small for you. An appropriate size would be a 19" ctc.

Slingshots are designed to be fit with a longer toptube so that the riders weight is balanced between the rear axel and the front arc created by the pivot. This allows the front axel to float through the arc path created by the pivot. Though you could probably extend the seatpost and stem enough to ride, it would place your center point too far forward, weighting the front wheel. This resdistribution will cause the bike to be a handful on descents and less effective under power.

After riding for Slingshot for four years, I can tell you that a properly sized frame is ALOT of fun to jam on. In fact, set up as a ss, it can't be beat for the smile factor.

cheers,

rody

Looks to be around a '93 with 1" headtube, non-suspension corrected...Eric?
