I'm sure you guys are right. I should have thought of that. Just seemed like a relevant place/thread. I suppose it's a tired subject, anyway. Perhaps I'll just keep tinkering around with it.

You mean more like your run on sentence without any punctuation? Dude, really? Do you figure me for a facebook kind of person or something? Hm.

I know this is an old, old thread, but in my fact finding searches I ran across this and hope someone can help.

Long story short, I find it very difficult to find off the shelf frames (new or old)...

Yeah, I read a lot of leather saddles have a very limited amount of rearward rail adjustment. Brook's in particular. Selle Anatomica addressed it with really long rails. I think they're oogily,...

I could be wrong, but the consequent amount of trail when wheel diameter is factored in might have something do with it.

Am I right or am I wrong? Anyone?

I definitely understand what you're saying there with frames that small. It does make a lot of sense. At 5'7, I don't believe I'll need to go less than 53cm on the TT. 54cm C-C on the ST is ideal for...

You probably can't quite make sense of it because I'm not always good at illustrating verbally. I am still trying to put all this together in my head. Also, I'm certainly not a frame builder, but I'm...

Wow! Thank you very much. I'll have to read over that a couple more times and think about what you just said. But, after a brief reading, there certainly is more in designing than I'd realized. But,...

Okay. I understand what you're saying. I'd read an article by Grant Peterson on seat tube angle and he pretty much said the same. Surly bikes....like the Cross Check....is a good example. Peterson's...

What would you call a small frame? I'm looking at something....most likely...in the 53cm/54cm range for myself.

You're a tall fella, aren't you? ;) Nice low bottom bracket, too!

So, is that the design Waterford came up for you or did you come with it?

I vote you go for the 12-30 and move to a 36t ring. A somewhat finer spread in the rear with the same low and same high as with the 39x13-32.

Ah, right....suspension fork. That's why I'd think, too. Funny. You'd think someone at a bike shop would mention that.
