Is that really a 25" frame? Looks smaller to me (admittedly hard for me to judge).

Was this built for 27" or 700's?

its only 4mm difference between 27 and 700c. It could be possible to fit 700c, but a test would be needed.

That granny chain ring looks tiny. Is it smaller than 24 teeth? Nice frame set.

I dont believe the thats possible with the 74mm inner bcd of an AT crank set. But its a really cool crankset, one of my faves.

No, not wrong, but you're illustrating why it's worthwhile to clarify CTC (center-to-center) or CTT (center-to-top) when asking about measurements. I don't know which tradition stems from where, but each one is typical of a region or era of some sort.

Mine measures 25" center-to-top and has a head tube length of 7 3/16" (if you want to check yours for comparison). Maybe they just look smaller in silver/red.

That's a fine bike with most of the key parts. Easy rebuild on a classic touring bike.

Yep. Seller appears to be including components shown (including Sugino AT crankset and cool 3 pulley RD) so this is a good deal.

Kinda surprised no takers yet - I dont need another frameset in my shed so really need this one to go to someone else.

Maybe adding top tube length would help?

Size limits the market is my guess.

And the longer fork, for larger diameter wheels, wide tires and fenders, would result in a shorter head tube.

That's a pretty sweet deal. If it was just about 4" smaller...

Thanks again for all the info justcynn ! I really wish this frame would work for me, but it's ultimately too large. Hope someone with the right proportions snags it soon because it really is a lovely frame and great deal IMO.
