If this had been 17.5" instead of 16", I'd have snapped this up... :(

(FYI: I have a copy of the Genesis catalogue in front of me and the frame measurement (405mm) is taken from the BB centre to the top of the seat tube -- not to the centre of the top tube)

Cheers CK. I've been keeping a lookout for one of these, but this one's just too tiny. I'd like the Altitude with the 853 tubing, but an Altitude with 520 tubing at a good price would do me fine.

I've had two Altitude 853 frames, both bought s/h at £250 a pop while still the current model. They were in tip-top shape though, if you could live with a bit more age/use then I reckon one could be had cheaper.

Biggest problem is that they don't seem to be that common. A wanted ad on STW might throw something up.
