Steve Rex Frame Fork & D'ace Headset

60x61 - have a new rig on the way while I'd like to say I am "thinning the heard" it's more like rotating stock. The fit is a bit off for me.

Frame is beautiful, does have numerous chips that have been touched up with nail polish enamel. Frame has been framesaved. No dents. Tracks perfectly.

Asking 450 plus shipping costs.

Hey Henry,

You interested in rotating your Meivici (frame-fork-headset) for my Hors Categorie (frame-fork-headset) and a few sheckels?

I know you've lusted after the right sized Hors Cat for a long time now. And, mine is the right size.

Just askin'

Steve

Anyone have any ideas on how it would ride if I put wooden blocks onthe pedals?

Maybe turn the stem around?

If it fits you, get it. I have two Rexes and they're my favorite rides. After getting and riding extensively my second Rex I've completely gotten over my lust for all other frames.

Sorry to be pedantic, but...

ST 60 c-c?
TT 61 c-c?
Or the reverse?

STA? (looks pretty laid back...)

Thanks
Tim

Do you happen to know what tubeset (or mix) Steve used on this frame? Simon, feel free to buy it for me if you want to have this in town. It is just about my size.

I apologize for posting in haste with incomplete information and will verify the following later but I beleive ST is 60 center to top, top tube is 61 center to center. Have no idea how to measure angles accurately.

I've ridden with bigman on this rig. The photo does not do the blue and orange colors justice It's so nice that I'm tempted to tell you to use blocks to make it work. Our shared Merckx history (almost) prevents me from doing so.

Henry is an addict. As his riding buddy, I'm tryin' to get the guy off the pipe. He is going through new bikes and frames faster than I can help him build them. Buy his Rex, but for the love of Pete, don't offer the guy trades, or more bikes.
