I would offer to exchange that with a 22-23" example.

I'd love to but I'll never part with this frame. Here's why.

my bike history was first road bike a 59cm, two years later a 56, 59 was too big to race on. I was young and tall, everyone thought I would attain 6í plus. Never happened.
now 55-56 center to top depending on the top tube.
I did find a 56 cm sistership of my first road bike, but that will be for another month, they all were black.

In 1972 I was a bit shorter and still growing. At my peak I was 6' 4" and I've lost about an inch. I rode 62s for many years and 2 years ago got a 63 cm frame that I like very much. French fit, to be sure. The Peugeot is way too small but I made it work, and in my mentor's honor I commuted on it for a couple of seasons. It never felt too small under me. Moving forward it will probably be more of a guest bike at our upstate house.

1978 De Rosa

Happy New Year! Iíve managed to hold onto this bicycle through divorce, multiple moves, a new relationship and home buying. Almost sold her a couple of times.. only ridden on dry, sunny days. I am on mixed tubulars..shopping for an upgrade (tyres) for Springtime.

I've had this for at least ten years. Started out with a $25 frame/fork/crankset.

I'm not sure if I posted this Stan Johnson here. Off all my bikes, this one has the most miles(put on by me), as well as some of my great cycling memories.

I had a white 1973 Peugeot UO-8 that looked better and rode better than a bike in that price range had any right to. I eventually cracked the chainstay between the chainring and tire clearance dimples.

I do have two littermate off-white Capo Siegers, one original, the other repainted, and I did have a pearl-colored Peugeot PKN-10 before I gave it to my elder son because it fits him better than it fits me.

Almost all-orig. 1960 Capo Sieger

Repainted Cap Sieger frame, serial number very close to that of my other Sieger, so who was I to say no to it?

My old PKN-10, now my son's kiddie-puller, although the boys are getting big for the trailer now.

Still have this one, but now it wears 650bx32 tires so that I can fit a front brake easier



Haven't ridden it all that much lately since the chainline is about 3mm off and it makes a lot of noise with a 1/8" cog and chain on a 3/32 chainring. Chainline issue should be solved here in the next couple of weeks and I'm hoping that it quiets down. It's a bit embarrassing to have a fixed gear make more noise than a geared bike

This one was sold off a couple years ago. It was my 'low-trail curious' bike.
Shoulda had a black saddle......

I worked at a Peugeot/Nishiki dealership in the early 1970s, and I still have a "thing" for white Peugeots, particularly the PX-10s. Great thread!
