great story .... my unicorn is yet to appear.

did you grow a foot sicne 1991? The 20 in frame, judging by the head tube, is much bigger than the one you had originally plus you have even more seat post extension?????? :o

Hmm you got me wondering exactly what size this Beast is.. the head tube does look quite a lot bigger than the original so I just got the tape measure out and floor to top of seat tube is 31.1" as in the chart below:

Then I remembered ez054098's 22" 1992 BofE thread.. and clearly a 22 is much bigger.

So mine is definitely a "BotE" 20.. even though measurement from centre of BB to top of seat toob is 18.6" :?.. this is more complex than Klein sizing :lol:

My old SE2000. I sold it a couple months ago. Still sorry I did. It went to a good home though.
