So I broke my 22" Alpinestars ASR-140 tonight :( Stomped on the pedals to do a wheelie, the axle snapped, and the whole rear end shifted right an inch. Going to try respace it and straighten it, but it doesn't look promising.

Since I'm 6'8", I need a huge frame. 21 or 22" with a long top tube (the one on my main modern bike is about 64cm effective), and to be compatible with my current parts it needs a 1 1/8 head tube. Don't mind rust or dents, can weld cracks.

Anyone got anything kicking around? I don't have much money, but I have a box of bike parts if you want to do a part-ex.

Thanks, but managed to bend it back with a mallet, should be good for another 17 years I hope!
