ISO 24" complete bike

My daughter wants to give her boyfriends classic bike as a gift.

He is 6'5" so about a 61 or 62cm is what I'm looking for.
Complete bike needed, as I donated all my parts and parts bikes to the coop before my move.

Whatcha got?
Peace

I'm 6'4 and find 64-65 cm frames to fit me best. Fit is personal of course but you may want to extend the search to larger framed bikes.

I agree that you should be looking for at least a 25 inch seat tube. 63 or more cm..

You know, both of my children are taller than I am, and they both ride smaller frames than I do. Height alone does not determine proper bicycle sizing.

Unless that boy's got some seriously short legs, a 61-62 is on the small side for him. I'm 6'3" and usually ride a 63-64.

1989 Trek 660

Email me if of interest.

Not perfect but really close. I have never ridden this bike. Bought for my son while he was in Korea. He doesn't want it, says two bike are enough!

Very nice survivor Italian AlAN carbon. Mild upgrade of the bones era. Reliable, light, fast and easy rider. Shimano 105, 600 tri-clr, clinchers, dual control STI. Italian saddle, Cinelli cockpit. I've loaned it to a few larger riders and without issues or complaints. Well mannered and still draws admirers. Kind of like the SR71 of bikes.

I have a Nigel Dean Tour Ace. It's this frame, but it's in a different configuration now.

Have a 25.5" 1983 Trek 520 in nice condition, I have been riding it but have to face the fact that it does not fit me Would probably be good for a man of that size. I am in Ohio.

I have a friend who has a 1976 Raleigh Professional in very good, mostly original condition in the largest size (I think 25.5"). I can put you in contact with him if that might be of interest.

I've got a couple big bikes that need a good home:

Schwinn Voyageur

Lemond Tourmalet

PS I might be interested in taking a certain set of Panniers in trade.

I've got a nice condition Miani Vice Ironman Expert hanging from the rafters - it's either 62 or 62cm CTT - I can't recall at the moment. Definitely on the big side for me (6'1").

Bike is completely broken down, so assembly is required.

Sarah picked the white 660.
Mainly because it is so clean.

Got the Trek from eom
I've sold and bought many bikes but none were packaged with more care than this beautiful Trek.
Flawless paint and near perfect tri-color.
Thanks eom!

Scott,
Glad you, and more importantly Sarah are happy with the Trek.

I hope it has a long and useful life.
