Building a SS Townie (What to look for in a frame)
After drooling over all the great looking townies in the “Showoff Your Townies” thread , I have a few questions about what I should look for in building up a Townie Bike.
(I posted pics of my old Townie in that thread)
What should I look for in a frame in order to get a more upright riding position that my current roadie.
2001 Lemond Maillot Jaune.
Seat Tube 53 c-c
Top Tube 545
Head Angle 73
Seat Angle 73.25
Fork Rake 47
BB Drop 70
(I am just a bit streched on this setup and could probably use a shorter stem, but I put in many miles and its comfortable.)
In terms of getting a more townie ride, do I go with a smaller frame size? Different geometry? If so what are the relevant measures I should look at?
I am considering a Kilo or Jury frame as my base if that helps focus the conversation. But I am open to any suggestions.
