They are really nice frames. I've been eyeballing that 63cm maroon with yellow lettering SPX for a couple of years.

I should just buy the dang thing already so it will quit taunting me.

I have a contact on couple of nice frames:

-63cm Lemond Zurich made with 853 (I kinda really want this one)
-63cm Fuso (super aggressive and fits only 23c tires).

Send me a PM if you are interested and I'll pass along the info.

the Merckx is owned by Michael Jordan but I don't know if that's really true

Jordan is 6'6" ... I'd guess no, unless someone put him on a frame that's too big???

May I make the suggestion that you include a size range that tall folks are looking for?

It may just be a personal preference of mine, but a PSA or any bike sale should include a frame size in the title.

I ride a 58cm and considering the amount of 56cm and under bikes I see posted here I've begun wondering if this puts me into the "big guy" bike market group. I don't consider myself to be that tall, I am taller than most people but I wouldn't call my bike "big".

IMO big begins at about 60cm c-c.

I'm interested in this thread but by the time any of the real good deals end up here they will be gone before you know it. I'll keep the real steals to myself and post up the expensive cool ones here.

I agree, you should.

The maroon one has a neat head-tube extension and higher up seat tube from the TT with lovely exposed chrome on the chain and seat stays. I have not see another one like that one before. I almost purchased it when I got my 63cm Casati from R&A, which I love. They had quite a few more a few years back but they have sold out most of the stock.

If you compare it to anything else out there its an excellent deal. A brand new, well respected Italian hand-built bicycle for under 500. If you asked Casati to make you the same style bike now, which he does, it would cost $5,000.

Maybe I should get another..

AT 6'5" I am on the lower cusp of the tall scale but I love this thread. Keep posting.

Already posted in classifieds but belongs here. Seems like a good deal?

Just picked up a nice new (used) steel rig (build/pics to come) otherwise I'd be tempted...
