One BIG Honkin' Bike!!!!!

I was looking for a bike for my wife on eBay today and I found a nice flat bar Trek that I was interested in. There was virtually NO information listed so I sent a message asking for more info like what size it was. Well the guy replied and told me the bike was a 32" bike!!! That thing's gotta be a real beeeaaatch to get on and off of!! LOL

I sure hope he meant that was a 23". I don't think anyone has ever made a 32" and that wouldn't fit anyone who walks on this planet. You would have to be over 7'5" to fit it I believe.

Oh, now there's one to bid on!! $500, seller has zero experience, no picture, and doesn't have a clue how to measure a frame.

Maybe it has 32 inch wheels. Still a big bike.

EXACTLY what I was thinking!! I asked the guy if he had a picture and he said he did not. Who in the hell would buy a "32 inch" bike without even seeing a picture of it???

i have a feeling that it was a 32" from top-tube to ground, roughly a 23" bike, depending on the geometry

Whatever it is I'd say it's probably too big for my wife since she is 5'2" HAHAHA
