Goldilocks situation, 18" too small, 20" too big! Who apart from Cove makes 19" seat-tube frames? A few shops are doing the Hummer for £950. I'd want something with disc mounts ready to run a 100mm+ fork.

Cheers

Cheers, I'll keep an eye out. To qualify the 19" statement a bit more I've found that a 18" seat tube means I very often have the seat post at it's limit (350mm post) and 20" inch frames are too long, 19" Konas are perfect, as are 17.5" Marins (19" c-t).
