Well... if you know you use like a 62cm steel old style bike or a modern integrated headset type of high end bike like in a 60 cm with like xx cm front tube... impulsive buying can make life really hard at the time to open the box and later at denial trying to get it fit. Definitely smaller is better than too big but when you are super tall no amount of trying to make it work will make it work.

I had a c50, in paper should had been right at the spot, 3 years in denial... gave up, had to let it go. In my case the frame was tad big, those things have such a long wheelbase...

For 1500 that battaglin is a steal tho... :/ wish was smaller and had the money :P

Seven Axiom SG with what looks like a 5E fork. Frame measurement looks like a shot in the dark. Good luck getting more info out of the sellers......but the price is right and frame/fork look to be in great shape. They do at least have a liberal return policy.

says 56 but that headtube says something else. However it could be a 56.

Its a good deal but I always thought those forks were ugly

When I was looking this morning, I found these guys--their page for Battaglin has a geo chart part way down the page:

Quite feasible that it's a 56cm top tube, despite that tall head tube - some of need bikes setup like that :cool:

The pics are just too blurry to make out specific details, but it looks like a screaming deal.

The head tube looks to be at least 250mm. It's a screaming deal for someone that fits that bike, if you can possibly find one.

The shorter top tube is actually what makes the head tube so long. If you make the top tube longer but keep the HTA the same then both the DT and TT get longer and the HT gets shorter to span the distance between the DT and TT. If you can picture it, it will make sense.

That said, who knows what the actual measurements of that bike are.

that's what they're hoping you'll think!

i dont know, to me 1000 bucks is still a lot of money, and if i'm going to spend anywhere near that amount on a bike, i want to be pretty damed sure on the fit numbers and other details. if it's a 150 dollar deal - i'd be more inclined to take a risk, but a grand for an old titanium frame of unknown geometry with well outdated components is about as much as they can hope for IMO.

wheels -

this is a pretty good deal for your disco kids:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Chris-King-...16.m2516.l5255

those matte turquoise hubs are hot and not usually found discounted.

I posted a link to those from a local guy here recently......they were on Craigslist and our racing organization site...... FYI, they are road racing rims, not for gravel or fatties.

I completely understand what you're saying -it makes perfect sense. However, I'm looking at it from a different perspective - the value of it parted out. I'm not sure if the frame would fit me or not, but I see what appears to be a 7800 DA groupset on the bike (my favorite groupset) and a set of 7800 or 6700 hubs (looking at the hub color and shape) laced to a set of Mavic OPs. The frameset to SOMEONE is worth $500-$750 all day long. The wheelset perhaps another $150 to $200. To me, I see a free or very inexpensive 7800 groupset. That's why I feel that it's a great deal (assuming that everything is in great shape).

I think your estimates are rosy. Maybe they'd be materialized, but things would really have to line up. Custom titanium frames that won't fit 28mm tires or 99% of the riders out there languish. Also, I probably wouldn't ride Open Pros today if you gave them to me. Just how it is. YMMV and all that.

AngryScientist 08-12-2019 02:34 PM

i wouldnt call this a great deal, but if you're a fan, you're a fan.

Nobilette complete build on the bay. 1100 start bid, 1500 BIN; Shipping price is ridiculous, but maybe that could be negotiated to something more reasonable for the serious buyer.
