Are the wheels different, or just the tires?

Either way, at $37.50 USD, it's the score of the week!

Great looking bike and great deal. $50 Canadian is about $38 US; what do you get for that money?

Too small for you? Did you try raising the seat post and handle bar all the way up? Or maybe, consider installing a taller seat post, like this one 👇?

Wheels match,,rubber does not. I could use ID on rear mech. Not a lot of range on the freewheel/cassette

"Giubilato"; so, their fork crown logo is a set of five Allen wrenches? Cool -- or a sense of foreboding.

Too small? No problem. Harvest the components and then offer the frame/fork for sale. I used to do this all the time and, believe it or not, as often as not, I got more cash for the frame/fork set that I could have got for the complete bike. My G was also too small but the parts harvest plus the frame set paid off well...
