With only 38 miles on it in a year, we've decided to let the wife's ride go. 10-year Anniversary DeSalvo with custom geometry. 54 (c-t) seat tube x 53.5 (c-c eff.) top tube. Head tube is 17 cm. Not a mark anywhere on frame/fork. Selling just the frame and fork. Steerer on fork has not been cut. If you don't want the fork, that's fine, as I'll keep it as a spare. Intent of this build was so that we could do some longer rides together.
Here's a quick pic before I break it down. It's been raining for 2-days, so sorry for the poor indoor shot - the flash lights up the tires though!
$1,250 shipped.

maybe she was afraid of getting impaled on the steertube?

Nope, she hadn't determined exactly how high she wanted the bars and since she never rode it enough to say exactly, we never got around to cutting the steerer.

IIRC these all were Columbus Zona front, Life rear triangles. A few had an optional Deda heat treated/shaped DT. Really terrific frames. This looks to have Mike's lugged steel fork as well.

You realized this was offered 3 years ago? Make sure you ask for a new picture :)

Exactly in the same spot - just need to pull the sheet off of it. That's the mother-in-law's room which hasn't seen any use in that time.

What is the saddle height (center of BB to top of saddle) as pictured? Frame sounds my size but that looks like a mighty long head tube...

Do you have the geometry specs?

Saddle height is 75.5 cm. The head tube is 17cm (didn't want look of spacers, or many if she decided bars needed to be higher).

I'll see if I can dig up the geo chart Mike sent over.

Eventually, it'll become one of those 'barn finds'.
