I’m posting this for a friend. This is an incredibly nice frame that was unfortunately sized incorrectly. If you buy it, I can pick it up for you over the holidays instead of dealing with shipping.

Ebay Link

The copied description is: Custom hand built LAND SHARK sport touring frame. Fully fillet brazed DEDACCIAI Less-Than Zero oversized steel tubing. Frame size – SEAT TUBE: 54.5cm center-to-top, angle 74.5 degrees. TOP TUBE: 55cm center-to-center. HEAD TUBE: 136mm, angle 74 degrees, 1 1/8th with pump peg braze-on. CHAINSTAY: 410mm. Ritchey vertical dropouts, cantilever studs, full braze-ons for rack and fenders. FORK: hand fillet brazed steel blades, crown, and steer tube: 242mm. Suntour Superbe Pro dropouts, fender braze-ons, low rider rack braze-ons, and cantilever studs ( no drilling in crown threaded back side ). Frame was ordered June of 2009, arrived in august to a local Brooklyn, NY shop. Built and ridden for 250.2 miles before being disassembled for sale. After some time spent riding I had felt that stand over height was an issue for myself. Then realized there had been a slight miscalculation prior to giving John Slawta ( frame builder ) the specifications. I have full intentions to order another frame from him. Nothing rides like steel and this is no exception. Frame and fork will accept up to a 700x32c cyclocross style tire. With a 700x28c the standover height is approximately 810mm ( top tube to ground ). Paint is hard to get a feel for in pictures, copper color with green and black patina accents no one would ever guess it is new, looks amazing with black components. Frame list price is $1695. Fork list price is $325. Some small chips on chain and seat stays ( see photo ). Don’t hesitate to ask any questions. Thank you.

Those are some steep angles and short chainstays for touring. Guess he’s putting the sport in sport touring.
