The top tube is too large, otherwise I could be getting in trouble here.

Top tube works great, but I would be showing extra seat tube.

......and a big dent in my head from the frying pan.

Me too... at that price you can't go wrong and I love the way merino feels. I got a $3 T-shirt too.

Thanks for posting LazyAss.

Is there anything to indicate that's a JT other than the decals? It looks like a resto, and it occurs to me that if it didn't have those decals, I wouldn't know what it was.

Just this:

Serial Number: 4371 which makes it a 1962 build
Which would normally satisfy anyone looking at it. Forgery? Doubtful, track ends with fender eyelets it's British.

The seller also has photos of Norman Taylor working on it before the repaint. It sure looks like the same bike.

Good enough for me! Or it would be if it were 2cm smaller on the tt.

I should have looked more closely at the photos - I stopped before the ones you mentioned.

The top tube is equivalent to 55 or 56 cm in standard geometry, notice how slack the seat tube is. Also note that it is shown with a forward offset seatpost in the original picture.

I'm sorry for being dense, and I see the slack tube, but if it's 58cm ctc, it's still a longer reach than a standard 56, right? I'm not that familiar with this kind of bike/geometry.

It's sold btw.

The top tube length is an artificial measurement. All things being equal, as the seat tube angle becomes more steep (vertical), you set back your seat to maintain your normal position with respect to the bottom bracket. Conversely, as it gets slacker, you either use a no-setback seatpost or even a forward-set seatpost. So in a bike like this, you are sitting more forward in reference to seat lug, which is why the top tube measures longer.

I understand...the seatpost expectation is different. Sorry for being slow.

No, not really but sometimes. Your going off the assumption of dropping a plumb line from knee to pedal. Some frame designers intentionally change seat tube angles to position the rider more forward or back thus changing the overall balance. LeMond believes in more laid back seat tubes to get his desired balance.

Because this is NOT a sizing/fit thread I will NOT be replying to any response.

Like @mountaindave said, not much there of interest other than the frame, though it looks like the stem and brakes are probably original. I'd be interested in the frame, but it's way across the country. Not likely to be worth the shipping. I have a too small PX-10 with original components which the owner repainted and from which he removed the s/n tag - grrr...
