    Thoughts on this Austro-Daimler frame?

    Was thinking of trying to snag this frame to play with... Maybe build up as a fixed (don't hurt me!).

    Just looking for thoughts—it doesn't seem to be an amazing frame or anything to my relatively untrained eye, but I have no knowledge of this company/european bikes in general. So what do you think? Deal? Rip-off?

    Also, the Ironman that is my daily rider is about 23in C-T and feels like a good fit (maybe slightly too big, but pretty darn good). Just eyeballing, this frame looks a teensy bit bigger, maybe 23in C-C. Is this pushing it sizewise? I have about 3 in of seat post showing right now, to give you an idea where I'm dialed in.

    Thanks

    For that price you can't go wrong unless there is some real damage hiding somewhere. I ride 25 inch center to top bikes and that looks like a 23 to me.
