Reynolds 853 19 inch frame.

Bought over a year ago but never used :(

It has gathered a couple of tiny paint chips from hanging about doing nothing :? I've fitted a fsa orbit headset (new), seatclamp (new), bottom bracket, lx (used) and front and rear mechs, xt (used).

It's a wee bit too big for me or I'd be out riding it the now and never parting with it but I didn't realise the 19 was so long :(

I'd like £275 paypal gift posted in the UK SWAPPED SWAPPED SWAPPED NO LONGER FOR SALE

Here's a couple of poor photos. Just ask for more info or photos if need be.

I've got a few photos I can email if anyone needs them.

Hopefully photobucket get their act together and the photos will be back on here.

When you say "long", do you mean that there's quite a distance between the seat tube and the head tube? :?

(Actually, I'm sure I've got a Genesis catalogue -- I could look up the frame sizes to compare with my current bike...)

For a 19 inch frame I thought the top tube was too long for me.

I make it 23 inches.

Cheers for the reply 8690.

I've been interested in buying an Altitude for ages now, but the Genesis catalogue says that they're designed for forks with 100mm to 130mm of travel, which rules out my old Marzocchi Bombers. And I don't really have the cash to buy new forks. :(
