You could always buy it, then look for someone who wants to trade for one that is your right size. As a frame, the only real detractor would be that it has a Suntour RD, which means the dropout mount has probably been tapped for it to fit. I say probably, because the PX-10 I bought in my size had a Suntour RD, but it wasn't drilled out, just screwed into the hole without any retaining bolt, so it cleaned up okay for the OEM RD. Parted out, you could easily get more than double your money for the F & F, Stronglight crankset, Lyotard pedals, Mafac Racer levers and calipers, and the stem and bars, etc. If it was near me, I'd buy it in a minute, and it's way too large for me.
