As far as I can remember they only made them in two cm variations, centre to centre: 48, 50, 52, 54, 56 and 58 the biggest.

Thanks, I have a traditional 56cm Peugeot but I fear this might be too big for me...Shame as it's something really special

Just measured it, prob a 52ctc but it's tricky to measure because the shape of the tube and depth of the top tube but is 56 ctt, I'm based in Wiltshire if you want to see it/ try it

I had a 54cm version. I'm 5'11. A 52cm would fit 5'7-5'10. The top tube on a ZX1
Is quite a good guide to conventional sizing.

Chris Boardman rode a few of these on the track. They looked pretty radical with discs and a 3G back in '91 ;)
