This will be my first post in this forum so forgive so forgive me if ruffle any feathers, I'm not a total FNG as I have posted in a other forums.

The frame/fork that I hope someone can use is an early 90's Diamond Back cyclocross frame, it was my brother's race bike when he first getting started in CX racing. The frame and fork are butted chromoly (CrMo) which makes it a good candidate for a touring or commuting build. The frame has threaded rear drop outs for a fender and/or rack. The "aero" fork (teardrop shaped tubing) has two fender or rack mounts, it has a threaded eyelet on the back of the fork dropout and a threaded braze on mid-leg. I've been building bikes for friends and family for 25+ years, I offered to rebuild his retired CX frame up as a commuter. While I gathered parts my brother was supposed to sand the frame and repaint it, as you can see he never finished his part (it has been sanded a bit more than the pictures show but still needs work). Since he gave up on the build, I've been left with a frame that is too large for my riding style. The frame is 60cm, if you'd like measurements of the top tube, please let me know. I'm 6 foot tall, my brother is 6'4", I prefer a 56/58cm and he prefers 60/63mm. The frame has been stripped of parts, other builds came along, I will include the black seatpost pictured (it's scratched from my gorilla brother but could be touched up easily).

As far as the frame I'm looking to swap for, I'm open to just about anything steel, not interested in anything aluminum as I'm a steel frame fanatic. As I indicated above, I'm looking for something around 56cm + or - will do fine. I'm cool with with trading for parts too, just let me know what you have. I really would like to this this frame get put to use, it hung on my brother's wall for years, and now it's been with me for the better part of a year... this ol' racer needs a home!


*** Edit / update ***

The 60cm (24") seat tube measurement was from crank center to the top of the seat tube. I did measure the top tube length, it is 58cm (just over 23"). Also, I had a local builder professionally widen the rear drop outs from the original 126mm to the modern 130mm. You can see this in the photo taken from above of the rear canti brake bosses and the drop out width; the wheel with the red hub spacers is a modern REAL (brand) 8/9 speed hub. Lastly, the threaded fork tube is 1", not the modern 1 1/8th inch (I included a photo with a measuring tape). You can see from the pics with the canti studs, this frame and fork have ample room for a CX or touring tire. Also, in the full shot it looks like there is a lot of rake to the front but that's not so, the fork isn't up and centered in the head tube. That's about it as far as what I left out.


I need a nice 26.8 seatpost for my '88 Schwinn Cimarron dirt drop build that I'm on right now. A nice front rack would be cool... maybe some fancy 700c metal fenders... anything PAUL would be stylie. I'm really flexible, just about anything for 700c road or 26" mountain would be great.


Let me know if you need any questions answered, thanks again!


Peace'fo'real,


-DON-
Man if the Paint was in good shape I would be all over it, it is a DB Override Hybrid frame & I built my wife up a NOS frame that is the same color with Shimano XT 9spd, great riding bike. I would like to find a tallish mens frame in the matching Purple to build up.

Is a '97/98' Bianchi Trofeo in RED on par with this? Cro-moly

I'll try this one again pre Westminster:

57cm square 10th Anniversary Eddy Merckx frame and fork. Chrome has some issues; there's a bit of cable housing stuck in the back cable run thru I really have not tried to get out yet. No dents or dings; frame is perfectly straight.

I would like to trade this for something interesting/similar in or about 62cm. Your chance to unload that way too big frame you can't sell, here's a sucker with long legs and a tiny Merckx.

I'll be at the Westminster swap in a few short weeks and would love to do an exchange there, a lot easier.



There is a full battery of photos here, exposing the frame's paint and chrome issues:

Thanks!

Does anyone have anything interesting (with decent paint) in 59 or 60cm? Maybe something different like Oria, True Temper Columbus Thron, or even a newer Dedaccia tubing? I may even consider a similar quality tall Mixte.

This is a 87 Mondiale wearing the unique "Metallic Celeste" paint. SL/SP throughout, but I put SL labels on it, and chromed under the paint. It is unfortunately only 57 C2T, 56 C2C and 56 C2C TT with a stand over of 32" as it currently sits. Italian BB and roughly 126 spacing.



There are additional pics here http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ondiale+Athena

Pedaltraveler,

I might have a serviceable, if not exactly beautiful Peugeot frame that might work for you. Just an 80's P8 though.

Looks like an 83 to me? Straight block letter DT decal, color, and frame construction gives it away. I had the mens version of this frame, and it was an all around great bike. I added a 70's Continental chrome fork cap, and it made the bike look WAY better.,,,BD

Hi, I might be interested, what size is it? I'm not necessarily looking for another french frame, just something that fits right.

They called it 21" so it's probably in the 53-54cm range.

89 De Rosa Pro - Columbus SLX

I have a 56cm x 56cm De Rosa Pro from 88 or 89 that I absolutely adore, the more I ride it though the more I just feel like it's a hair too small. It's in good, original condition with some nicks and scratches in the paint. Definitely not a show bike but overall very good, and absolutley no dents, dings or bends.

I'd be interested in trading it for something with a 58cm or 59cm (C t C) seat tube, preferably with a 57 or 56 top tube. I'm looking for something of equal or higher quality, would be happy to throw in some money for the right frame. Would love another De Rosa but would also be interested in a Masi, Merckx, Serotta, etc. Let me know if you've got anything interesting!

Wow, sad to say I have nothing similar. I would LOVE to to put all my single speed parts onto something that nice. Oh well.,,,,BD

Not sure if you are interested but I have a lugged Bruce Gordon Chinook that is a 57cm x 57cm (I think) made with Columbus SL tubing from around 87. Needs a paint job though. I can get some pictures up if you are interested. I was thinking about putting it up here anyway. I think it has a Campy headset and I can include a extra long bontrager seatpost too.
