Hey all,

I need a new commuter, and I’m thinking I might as well build it out as a tour bike. So, something light steel or <i>maybe</i> aluminum, braze-ons for at least a rear rack, drops, etc.

If you have anything available, or just a deal on frame, parts, etc from that project you keep putting off, hit me @ bluestemaudio@gmail.com

thanks

what size?

That’s pretty important. Thanks.

Generally, 58-60 cm should work, depending on the geometry.

The reason I’m putting up WTB’s is because everything I find that’s less than an hour away seems to be either 53 cm or 63 cm.

By the way, if anybody really tall needs a fairly nice tour bike, I met a guy on the N Side with an older Cannondale T series (aluminum) with shimano 600 series gruppo and a brand-new Brooks saddle for like $275. Not sure the actual size, but I’m 6’0″ and don’t quite clear the top bar.
