Maybe you should look for a 16inch. It is more like 17,5 inch standard.


Had 2 16's way too big for me. top tube far too tall.

Update: fitted Syncros Powerblade forks and 1st Generation stem. I also prefered the more chunkier Panaracer Dart/Smoke Re-edition over the thin (and much lighter) Ritchey Force Duro K WCS. I also replaced the old U-Brake Shimano brake pads with lighter Kool Stop ones. They are very powerful, amazing! :o

Sorry for the bad pics. Weather permitting I will shoot some nicer ones in a few days:

Very happy now! :D

Nice forks, toying with idea of going rigid myself!! You've tempted me.

amazing ..
me a lot better with that first generation stem.
I really like how it has been set, fine, elegant.
maybe a shank black ... :?:

someone with a stem like this, who needs it? :roll: :roll:
