**SOLD**FS/Feelin ya up: 57.5 Moots Compact Campagnolo Chorus 11 Complete Bike.

Regretfully selling my Moots compact with stock geometry. I've tried everything to make this bike fit and I'm simply too tall. Purchased this from the original owner recently with hopes of making it work. The frame is a 57.5 compact from 2003. The group is a 2010 Chorus 11 group with compact 175mm crank. The group has under 1,000 miles. I have various wheel options ranging from the EC90 SLX tubulars to the wheels pictured here(Chorus/DT Swiss Hugi) and others. The frame is in outstanding condition with typical cable rub. No dents or dings. The handlebars are Deda Zero 100 and the stem is a Deda Newton 130mm. The post is a ti Moots set back and the saddle is a Fizik Antares. Fork is a full carbon Reynolds. Not interested in parting the bike out but may be interested in a trade/partial trade for a complete Ti or custom steel bike in a a size 60-62. I'll send additional photos to those interested. Would love some input on price but was thinking 3800 obo? Thanks!

Edit: this bike is also for sale on the local craigslist in Santa Cruz.

What are you talking about? That looks like it is set up nicely with nothing out of proportion. I don't see a whacky super long stem, excessive stack, or saddle slammed all the way back- things you would normally see in a frame that is too small. Granted the seatpost is pretty high and you have a good amount of saddle-to-bar drop, but that looks like a typical racer fit.

That is too sweet a bike to get rid of! But good luck in your sale. It should go fairly quickly. (Wish it was my size!!!)

What is your inseam balls to floor? Multiply x .883 and voila. Saddle height. I you lowered it way down for the pic then I guess you are either riding super high or on the wrong bike like you state. Bump for my dream bike anyway.

Balls to floor or perineum to floor? That measurement could change with the seasons...

Also, I tried that calculation and it tells me I should lower my saddle by over 4cm... No Thanks!

im 6 2 and bought a used 57.5 first. No way i could make it fit so no suprise that your 6 4 wont fit. I bought a 59 thats a great fit but even that might be small for you. Larger moots are less frequently up for sale unfortunetly. Have seen one 59 over the years but countless small ones.

Nice bike!
