So darn hard to find a beater

Yeee Hee saw this in the paper http://www.vintage-trek.com/TrekBroc...rt2.htm#page13 got to call the guy and see if this thing fits he describes it as a 17inch frame but according to this site it didnt come in a 17inch frame if I am riding a 52 cm frame will I be able to ride a 17inch frame?

thanks for the help (why does everyone in Grand Rapids Michigan have to be on the phone when I want to buy a bike from them)

52cm = 20.4in, so a 17 (if it truly is a 17) may come up a little short for you.

Depends on the standover height and weather the seat tube's measured C-C or C-T.

C-C == center of BB to center of seattube/TT joint

C-T == center of BB to top of seattube

I seems that all those bikes have seattubes that end at the TT, so C-T == C-C
