It's a '91 Miyata triplecross, do you think it looks like the 60cm or the 63cm frame?

Are those 26" or 700c wheels?

I'm guessing somewhere between 60cm and 62cm.

Agreed, that looks like around a 24"/61cm to my eye...

They have 700c wheels and fairly shortish top tubes for the heights. Just right for a shortback... 😆

Judging by the head tube length I'd normally guess 60cm, but since the frame has very little BB drop you'd still have a head tube like that with a shorter seat tube, so 58cm.

That doesn't have as much tire clearance as I'd expect. But, unicrown bikes can be a little deceiving when looking at the headtube.

The crown race also looks a little awkward on that bike for some reason. It is hard for me to judge why it looks like there is a gap under the crown race.

Anyway, it could well be the 63.

The easiest way to determine, of course, is simply to get out the tape and measure it.

Nope.
I walked away.

60cm here as well. It tries to be a 63cm (my size), but the headtube is just a hair short for that size.

Yeah, all that...

I was browsing the Craig's and spotted a bargain on a bike I've been itching to try, and got ahead of myself.

But I'm heading to New York in a month and it's just not the right time.

I'll recite my 10 hail Fausto's and hope Mercks will pardon my soul

No judgment here. Takes maturity and common sense to turn down a deal when conditions warrant.
