the components group is very nice for hilly rides and as Russ said, it does not have many miles. I could use the group and wheels for the frame is way too large for me:mad: Pete

Beauty!

Could be just the angles of the pics, but that looks like a headtube for a 1 1/4 inch (rather than 1 1/8) fork steerer...

You know this is a sweet ride! I wish I had longer legs...Contact points other than standover is a fit. Had to be born with ape like features of long torso/arms and short legs. Some big guy should grab this...Just sayin.

If the HT and ST angles were reversed, it'd be bought by me immediately. Jeff N.

Jeff,

You would think they would be with this size of frame. 72.5 is a nice seat angle for seated climbs. I bet it's the other way around.

Maybe Kelly Bedford can post the draft sheet. Has fairly long chainstays. I think the angles are the other way around. Sure looks like a great all-around ride.

Man I am glad I am not tall. Those Big Guy bikes just look odd to me.

STA looks right to me. I bought Kelly's CSI with a 73 degree sta. Both my customs are 72 degrees though. Since I am about Kelly's size I look at the bikes he puts up for sale. I recall they have all been 73 degree sta.

I'll try this again, looks like my first post didn't stick.
The seat tube angle on this frame is 73deg. I don't fit the mold for big guy's as I have shorter than normal femurs so to get a good to pedal spindle relationship it required this seat angle and a zero offset post which works perfectly for me. Since I had to go a bit shorter and higher in the frt. due to a previous neck injury and ever increasing age I went with a 72.5 Head angle to maintain a reasonable front center measurement and this in conjunction with a 43mm rake fork creates a trail number that maintains responsive handing and hands off stability at any speed. My normal frame size is 60cm but the head tube length, 24cm, is the equivalent of about a 62cm frame for the needed extra height. The fork is an Enve tapered fork 1 1/8" x 1 1/2" which requires the larger head tube and the CK which is included. I will entertain any reasonable offers and am open to selling the complete bike.
Anybody that might be interested just give me a ring or email.
