Im looking for a new frame and fork for a commuter/tourer project. Id like it to have a level-ish toptupe, square-ish geometry, as in not-too-long toptube, so a late 80s frame maybe? Really like the look of old Ritcheys and specialized stumpjumpers.

the frame should atleast have fender eyelets.

A lightweight tubeset is a must as im a lightweight rider.
Can pay well for a good frame or buy a cheap beat up frame as well. Aesthetic condition can be pretty much anything. Even minor structural damage doesnt necessarily matter, i have some friends who can repair steel frames

Im in Helsinki, Finland but will pay for shipping costs of course

send me a PM if you have something i might be interested in!

I got some more, mainly Scotts (level top tube), fender eyes could be missing, though, being race/top of the line frames back in the days.

thanks for the tip! but need to add to my want list "a peaceful simple color scheme" as ive been offered many wilder fades and neon splashes as in that one hehheh =)

after having owned many golden and shiny and metallic paint bikes i feel like having something soft and plain

I’ve got a mid 90’s Rockhopper frame in dark red/plum. 19” frame with eyelets. Almost a complete bike, but would sell frame and forks only. PM me your email and I’ll send you photos.

i have to say Wow thanks for all the offers and messages. i was really surprised =) But sadly i couldnt pick any of them (maybe 25 frames in total), seems im very picky :mrgreen: mostly it was because of the geo and colorss

so still looking for a frame, size 19-20" or so, with a simple plain paint job. my favourite style wud be a "repainted badly in some dull non color 20 years ago" :D

geometry like this abouts: ('90 stumpy)

cheers...
