That was rectified on the later models, my 19" frame boasts a 22.75 (centre to centre) top tube. I'm 6'2" and it's dandy!

Mine (18" frame) was too big for me at the time so I never had that problem.
Would fit me fine now if it wasn't long gone :cry:

Well, finally managed to get a few hours on this resto tonight :D

Middleburns sparkle like new and my USE titanium post polished up nicely, got re-stickered and my recently restored flight stuck on top.

RC35's get fitted tomorrow hopefully.

I'll post some pics soon.

Sounds goooooood!
My Clockwork arrives tomorrow...
...i'm excited! :D
I hope the paint and decals look as good as they did in the seller's photos.
I'll be looking for Middleburns, RC35s (possibly) and a Flite for mine too, great minds!

Yours is going to look very nice, I can tell.

You can't go wrong with a sprinkling of top class British components on a Clockwork - luckily I have had all mine lying around as I never get rid of old kit (much to the wifes disgust :) )

Oooh, looks great!

I'm beginning to think a BOTM Clockwork special wouldn't be such a great idea...[/sore loser]
