Ooh tempted. Any idea how old it is? Might be too big, need to check.

edit: are you sure that’s 64cm?

I was told it was a 56 cm when i was first told about it , with the saddle as shown in picture i can just tip toe the floor at 5ft 10" with 31" inside leg
It might work, I’m 6ft exactly with a 33 inside leg. Nothing I can do about it at the moment I’m in Edinburgh, but I might come up next week and have a speculative butchers at it if it hasn’t gone by then.

@CarlP that should work and has to be worth a shot

I find top tube length a more important dimension since it is easier to raise/lower the saddle than make adjustments to stem reach. How long is the TT on the bike? (I'm not actually looking for another bike, but it may be important for would-be buyers.)
Top tube is 54.5cm from seat post to stem and currently has a 11cm stem

That sounds like a huge difference... I was just taking measurements from the photo and if the seat tube is 64 cm, the TT looks more like 60-61 cm - I'm confused! :wacko: (Though that is a fairly normal state for me... :laugh:)

Here's my working!

Just double checked it and it's correct
