WTB: Steel lugged frame, 57-58 top tube

Looking for race type geo, not touring or going slow to smell the roses. Steel lugged, horizontal top tube 57-58cm. I can ride a 61cm c-t seat tube as long as the top tube is within range. My Serotta Atlanta is 58 square and works quite well. Condition should be good to very good. Pretty paint is a plus. Brand or tubing is not so important but SLX or EL-OS would be dandy. Italian, American, Japanese, etc.. It will have a modern brifter drivetrain so nothing that would make that impossible.

Does it need to be lugged? I'm considering selling my Somec ProMax in about your size. Made from Columbus Max tubing. Definitely race geo. I think it's got a 57.5 tt.

Lugged is not a complete must have. I am not sure I could put out the watts needed for a Max tubed frame but I will entertain the idea. I would have bought your Basso in a heartbeat but it was just too big for me.

Surely not as nice as an MXL, but I have a Concorde SLX frame that I THINK fits your size parameters. Would have to measure to be sure. Not looking for maximum value or anything. I - THINK - it's even spaced 128 in the rear.

Edit - I checked an old PM discussing this frame and it's (ctc):

TT- 57cm
St - 58cm

Condition is subjective...I'd call it good, but it does have scratches as I recall. Obviously I can take better photos if you're interested.

The Basso was a great frame, and just too big for me as I'm shrinking my bike sizing (going to 57-57.5 top tubes) and I'm just too overloaded with bikes, and more coming. Arrgh! I think that's a first world problem, eh?So I've sold off four frames this year and a couple more to go.

Somec Promax (these are all my measurements, being as accurate as I can be):
CTC: 58, CTT: 60
Top Tube: 57.0
Headtube: 16.1 (no cups)
Headtube w/cups: 20.5
Stack: 57.2 (to center of headtube w/o cups)
Reach: 40.6 (same)
Some sort of Campy headset, too.

I can sell either frame/fork/HS or complete. More photos here.

I am back on the hunt for a frame. Wild paint could be a plus.

Basso with SL tubing. 59 CCT seat tube and 58 CTC top tube. It has some paint chips that were touched up but the color match isn't great.

I've got a 70's Reynolds 531 Lime green and chrome Mercier 300 frameset if French is of interest or a possibility.

Interesting frames for sure. The French frame is not for me really but thanks. It will probably come down to the color and nothing more.

I have a 58cm square Pinarello Italia. Tretubi frame (3 main tubes Columbus). Early '80's, classic Italian race geometry.

Chrome is pretty nice, all intact and smooth aside from a few small pitting spots on the chain stays, mostly on the inside, wheel side. As best I can recall, chrome on the fork is totally good. I can take some close ups later when I get back.

I haven't ruled anything out yet but still looking to see what else might pop up. Who's got a Serotta? I might I need another one.

I have a Ciöcc in Columbus EL with a 57 cm top tube that I'm planning on putting up for sale soon. Paint is far from perfect but still pretty with chrome seatstays and chain stays. It has a tiny dent in the top tube and the rear DS dropout was replaced at some point in it's lifetime.

I have always admired that CSI. The idea of matching fenders is very cool but not something I would actually use. Love the color as well. I am guessing the Colnago would be a tad spendy for me.
