I'm looking for a steel (or titanium, dreams dreams :oops: ) nickel finished frame, size L or 18.5/19.5" (i'm 6 feet), with rear canti bridge or lateral mount, like Orange, Parkpre or Marin.

This one was perfect but in 17" a way to small for me :roll:

Widen your search to a 94 DiamondBack Axis. Mine would be perfect for you, but I'm not selling I'm afraid.

Would you consider a frame without the rear canti bridge? I've got an unpainted skinny tubed stainless steel frame without one & no disc mount either though so it's prob about 1997. You could use V brakes or get a bridge welded on. Weight is exactly 5 lbs bare. It's 20'' centre to top of extended seat tube with 22.75'' top tube. Just finished building it up in it's latest incarnation today. Can take a photo tomorrow. Make - who knows? I had an identical frame that had metal Claud Butler badges & a Tange MTB tubing sticker on it so it's presumably something generic that various different makers put their own stamp on. Rode really well when I last had it built-up & doesn't rust despite having no paint or lacquer.

Took this out for maiden ride today, nice dry trails apart from the occasional flooded section. Bike rode really well, needs some lighter tyres to liven it up a bit but very pleased. Polished steel frame, no paint or lacquer.
Don't need it though, got loads! Would sell.
It takes a 29.4 seatpost (I've shimmed up a 27.2) & 31.8 front mech. I'm 5' 11'' & it fits me fine with the seat in this position.
