6'6" and it's wonderful for getting top-of-the-line retro frames as they just don't sell. I've a 27" Rob Telfer road frame in 853 Pro Team tubing for £160 POSTED!

just thought it might be of interest is all.
the frame was actually started end october 1999, so not so far off,
but wasn't completed until march '00.
didn't mean to press anyones buttons.
apologies for any upset :oops: :oops:
could be moved to post '98 section by mods
:

It pushes my buttons, but in a nice way! It's bloody lovely!
