No problem. All you need is someone about 7 feet tall !

There's a hint there. If it's yours and it's how you ride it as seen in the pic, how tall are you ?

Re:

We know, and Ian loved it... but age and arthritic knees have intervened. Had it on eBay and Gumtree with no nibbles. We think it’s the frame size. Oh well.
