+1 to Bianchigirll's assessment: definitely not a Raleigh, much less a Technium. Odd that the description says "Columbus 531." Peculiar error, that.

If the OP is interested in buying it to ride it, be advised that with such funny bikes, the seat tube length is immaterial for sizing purposes. The effective top tube length (i.e. the horizontal measure of the distance between the head tube and the seat tube) is what you need to know. The pictured bike is correctly set up, unlike most you see these days, with the seat way up, as ridden by people who think the seat tube length should be identical to that of a conventional bike that fits correctly.
