Would like to buy a nice Audax/fast tourer/training type frame. One that has room for at least 700x32 tyres and mudguards. I'm just at 6' so would would like about 23".

Condition is not real important as long as solid.

It does not matter if cantis or deep drop brakes. 130mm spacing would be nice but can't be 120mm (too much of a stretch?).

A bonus would be Raleigh.

I have cleared my inbox for the deluge of replies :)

You've see that one in the Owners' Road Bike section as well haven't you? The same thought has crossed my mind too!

If you mean the black Raleigh, yes. It is so much cleaner and sleeker than this that I put together to do a similar thing. Although mine is fine on the road, it will not take mudguards (at the rear) and because the BB is higher, so the seat has to be! I can only just get my leg over ( oh vicar)

Thanks for taking the time to reply, just a little small and really require frame only as going for a "neo retro" build.
