Not trying to nit pick but why do you have this listed as a 57/58 when the top tube is a shade under 55 and the seat tube a 56? Feel free to correct me if I'm missing something but I fear you are missing your target audience listing the bike this way. Beautiful bike regardless.

I agree, being currently in Europe (Stuttgart Germany) and interested. Once I read the geometry it pretty much deflated my enthusiasm. Really wish it was a 57 to 58 TT.

A great bike none the less!

When your "55cm" bike is taller than most 60cm bikes, what do you call it?

It is a little tall, as most who ride a saddle at close to 80 will look for something closer to a 57-59 top tube.

Maybe list both top tube and seat tube -- like 55 x 56?

One has to take the geometry as a whole into consideration. With a ST angle of 73.6 and HT angle of 72.5 the top tube measurement reads short and is not a good indicator of fit/size on it's own, which is probably why OP didn't use it (to his credit).

Stack and reach are something like 620/365.

Good points about the geometry. It is a custom bike which was designed for someone who looks like me.

I'm 193cm tall. I have short legs and I don't like to bend too much.

So take a look at the standover - you need to be a certain height to throw your leg over the top tube. You then have a massive head tube which means that you don't have to bend too much.

If you see the stack and reach you'd see that this bike is "like" a traditional 57/58 frame.

I'm also happy to entertain proposals!

You are too kind Colonel! My Seven has a similar geometry with seat tube at 54cm top tube at 55.4 seat tube angle at 73 and head tube at 72.5! The front center is around 58.5cm then....hardly a 54cm bike, especially not with a head tube at 18cm and stand over at 83.5cm .

The beauty of custom bikes!
