I believe that was me Si
I will try and sort something out but not holding out much hope.
I love retro bikes but just can't find any I feel comfy on.
You only need to be comfy-ish for 20miles
What size frame you ride ?
The Alpine is a 21" but feels too small.
I have a 97 Giant Terrago Frame which is 21.5" different geometry but feels a lot bigger.
And the Ragley Blue Pig is a 20" but has a 24" + top tube and is perfect.
I'm 6'5" and 18 st ish but I just find the retro bikes are far to low at the front and thats where I dont't feel comfy.
You tried the large Kona frames ? http://www.konaretro.com/articles/catal ... Page29.jpg
, they have long head tube and top tube in the larger sizes, so rise the front up quite a lot. There is a marked difference between my 20" 1991 Rocky and 1997 20" Kona at the front of the bike and not just the marginally longer A2C.
I think Mr K has mainlined most large retro frames though.
Saying that I'm 5'10" and ride the 20" but that's more for my legs and don't mind the reach.
Will defo look into them.
Will have to discuss this over a few cold beers.
