How much clearance between the tire and the 'seat tube'?

Those are some narrow handlebars but then again, that's a pretty small frame size so I guess they go together.

Only a few mm. I had to buy 700x20c tires because the 700x23c rubbed.

Good grade on the overall concept and line, but do I see platform pedals with the aerobar-style bike? This does not compute....

OK - I agree but ...

I'm selling the bike because it's a woman specific bike (tall woman). I built her for fun and to use up spare parts. Bikes with pedals sell faster than bikes with no pedals and sometimes platform pedals attract more attention than Look, SPD, or other specific styles. The buyer will probably own or buy their own preferred style. I've had some buyers show up with their shoes and pedals. I've had other buyers grateful when I took Look pedals off so they could test ride with platforms. I should modify my ad to offer Look pedals as an even exchange.
