It is indeed a size 19 the way Orange measure it. Intended for height range 5-8 to 6-1.

The seat where it is would suit a height of c5-0, whereas the vast stem would suit a height of c6-0, so no wonder our eyes are slightly distracted from the fundamental beauty of the frame!

Something doesn't look right, just can't put my finger on it. Oh, and I'm jealous.
