Lovely build...used to ride a DeKerf Implant in this Guiness colour. Really colour.

2 questions...

1. what is the top tube length on this?
2. it’s an awesome build...any chance of frame only deal? (almost embarrassed to ask!)

How tall are you and what height range would this suit?

I’m 5ft 7” I would guess about 5’9”-10”. A lot depends on how you want to ride it, it’s set up fairly modern right now, but it would be fine as an earlier 90s tribute. I will check remaining seat post length if it ever stoops p*sing down. I also have a longer Hope stem I could swap onto it.

There is bags of width in the bar, I was alway meaning to cut it down but never did.

It rides like a dream though. Eats up single track. Monsters uphills.
