I've always wondered what those were like to ride. They always look huge. What length is the top tube?

Ah yes, bit of a story behind this.
I bought this pretty much on the advice of the seller and blowing pictures up really big and trying to guess the size based on scale/position of brake bosses -so not really knowing what size it was.
Apparently they all have the same size seat tube or something.

Turns out that this one is a weenie 16" when measured from centre of BB to centre of where the top tube joins. Perfect! Phew.

To answer you question, I measured the top tube as 21" from joint to joint.

Wheels are here.
Not particularly retro (Sorry purists! :lol: ) but being only 24 spokers and tubeless they should help keep the weight down a bit. I think that once fitted they should look the part too.

Had a request for an update. Sorry! Been busy. You know how these things are.

At the moment it's a "Rolling Chassis". Got hold of a Specialized fsx fork, so that's propping the front end up. Wheels are on, brake levers are here waiting for a bar, XT rear mech is on...
Um, next up is a headset and then figuring out if I need a longer steerer.

Picture coming soon. :mrgreen:
