Bike Friday Pocket Rocket

I'm selling my much beloved Pocket Rocket. It has Shimano 105 Components. I just had it tuned up with new bearings in the head, new tape on the handlebars and new brake-pads. I added brake levers on the bars so you can brake sitting upright as well as bent over in racing position. There are other things I've added to the bike including a saddlebag, water bottle cage, CatEye Computer (wired), and frog speedplay pedals. The bike is in very good condition with some scratches from riding and the Bike Friday decals are a little "Wonky." The saddle is not in very good condition and has some significant gashes in the back of it. One quirk on the bike is the front tire has a Schrader valve and the back tire a Presta valve. $800 plus $100/shipping. You can respond to this thread or call me at 641-295-4000 if you have questions. -Tom

We can't make a decision without knowing the size of the frame.

Hi,
It has been so long, I don't remember the exact size of the frame. I am 5'8" with a 29" inseam. The bike was custom made for me.

That's the size of You Not the bike, they make 8 'sizes', the top , only, tube length is the only one
that cannot be changed. *
My Pocket Llama is a Medium, IE a 56cm between centers of seat tube and fork steerer.

*The handlebar mast and the seat mast can be replaced by the company for other owners..

I thought those had a number etched on the bike, serial number, that could identify original specs.
