Boooooo!

I'd have given you a few quid for it if it was about 10 inches smaller.

When it says 'way big' are we talking 20" or bigger? :shock:

I think Medium, Large and Way Big are all 20" - what changes is the length of top tube.

I'm almost tempted, if only because it's big enough for a lanky bar steward like me!

I'd been waiting for a Way Big for ages, bought other bikes in the meantime, now 2 have come along and I can't afford another bike :cry:

Cheers for all the responses guys.. I think what I'm going to do is give it a good tune-up this month and then post back here with full spec (frame sizes etc..) I don't want to waste anyone's time.. and I was hoping to get an idea of it's value which which I now have thanks to everyone on this board.

I'll post back here soon with full spec and final price.

Thanks!

Cheers for all the interest.
