Its a bianchi forza 54cm with vertical dropouts in blue with a unicrown fork and no headset or bb. paint is fairly rough but overall in good shape. George wants 50 bucks I think.

Also they have a really nice 58cm botecchia 10 speed that I was tempted to buy. Just needs a little TLC and it would be a sweet ass ride.

Which will probably mean downhill and with the wind.

I have a 70's frame you might be interested in. I think it is a Gitane or LeJeune frame. 59cm seat.....60cm top. It needs paint but is pretty sweet. Nervex lugs. French thread B.B. tho so you would need a Phil B.B. P.M me if you want more details.

RE: saturday - any idea what time you keedz are planning on ending up at the Dee's? I probably won't be able to hit moonbeam for 12 as I'm helping my friend Marco get his fix on the road on saturday morning and then heading out to high-park cycle to try to find a frame for my other friend, but It'd be good to meet up and burritocize later on.

he deffinately understands tall riders. when i talked to that guy at the bike show he was towering over me, and i'm tall. he must be about 6'8". i liked the frame he built for himself. one of these days i'll get a custom frame. for now, i have to figure out what i want (and pay for school); the urbanite will have to do.
