Thank you everyone! Lotsa good information and links, i'll check out thoes links further tonite. Everytime i goto the sheldon browns website, i see the surly steamroller frame, and start to drool, maybe i will go new? hmmm
Im bummed, the bike was a KHS race (?), an ugly orange red lugged frame. The downtube had a few ripples just below the headset... I asked the guy if it was in a crash, and he said no, but he would drop the price from $25 to $10. I told him i would have no use for the frame in that condition, and left
The frame itself must have weighed close to 10lbs! It was heavy!
I droped by a pawn shop on my way home, they had two or three lugged bikes, but non larger then a 55cm, i need a 61cc atleast, 6'4". I'll keep looking.
