If you can find one in your size, I say grab the Sequoia. I had a 1983 Jim Merz version that was unfortunately one size too large. The ride quality was amazing, & even though it didn't quite fit

, I still regret selling it. Here's a pic from when I posted it on FB Market Place.

That is one tall Sequoia, but not the biggest I've seen. Here's a pic of mine (which is a 56cm) with a frame I facilitated for beaverstuff , which I believe was a 68.

Of course, this is the biggest sequoia I've seen.

I would think a Trek 720 1982 through 1985 should also be on the menu.

Gotta add a little Midwestern dairyland to all this woodsy Oregon exotica and Britbike Upper classism!
