Very large frame or bike needed!
Nothing too racy.
This might be a long-winded search but if anyone has anything...
Cheers!

I have a giant giant peloton frame and forks in the shed. 26" or thereabouts, fair condition, can do some pics next week if interested.

Cheers

Hi, thanks for both of these, but neither suitable I'm afraid. I'm after something classic with nice lugs and relaxed geometry, mudguard eyes etc...
Cheers

Hi guys. Do you have any suggestions for a Peloton Bike? I would love to buy one, but it is very expensive.

If you’re looking for a big relaxed tourer, both the Claud Butler Dalesman & Majestic came as 25.5” frames, there’s often one popping up on eBay at a reasonable price....
(I presume you want a project and not a finished mint like mine? See in signature below)

Here's a nice big Overbury's tourer in Tiverton (not mine):

Thanks for the heads up on these. The Overbury's looks a very good option, though the chap it's for is ideally after something with fancier lugs. Think he's gonna have to compromise on something though at his height...!

Yeah, I think finding a fancy lugged frame bigger than 25" is going to be very difficult. I'm 6'6" and the rare times a vintage frame/bike my size comes up they tend be 70s onwards after the fancy lugs era.
