    What size is this???

    Need your help in guessing the size of this bike. The seller does not know what size it is nor cares to find out how to measure. I could just wait till tomorrow to find out as my friend was nice enough to pick it up for me this evening. By the way;this is not a bike for me, as I told the wife I would not buy any more.

    59 or 60 cm? Total guess. I ride a 63 and that is definitely too small.

    I'll swear to it that those are 24" wheels. Either that, or its the shortest 58 ST I've ever seen in my life.

    58cm. I've little doubt, .5cm one way or the other.
    Raise the saddle, and we'd all be closer to agreement. It's an optical contusion.

    Either way, it was real nice of you not to buy the bike not for yourself.

    Wait a second. You're not supposed to find amazing deals now that you're back in the States! In the past, we could always blame it on the fact that you were in the Holy Land of vintage bike deals. But, if you keep this up here, we'll all end up with inferiority complexes!

    One more for 58 cm, judging from the head tube.

    I vote for 58cm. Also judging by the headtube length.

    Looks like a Falcon Merckx, 70s vintage, which means its sized in inches. My estimate is 23.5", or 60 cm, center-to-top.

    I don't know yet, though I'm hoping it's a Kessels since it's in Belgium.

    But you are mistaken; I'm still in Belgium. All my stuff has been shipped but I'm still still here till the 21st. I'm really trying not to buy anything else, but this one was cheap.

    I don't know how many Falcons made it to Belgium, but I'm hoping not many and that this one is a Kessels made Merckx. I've been lusting for one since I got here and this is potentially, the first one I've seen at a steal. I'll post pics latter today once I pick it up. So what does the first person to have guessed correctly get........Maybe some Belgian Beer????

    - In that case, you're allowed to buy as many additional bikes as possible before coming back. The wife will only be mad at you for a few months.....

    By the looks of things, my kids will have more trouble deciding which bike to use while in college.
