Edit 4/1 price drop (on facebook, offerup still $650), now $600 - https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/...089890778877/? also now listing Trek 660 for $600 which seems very steep?

Likewise the fork blades would have to be smaller for a 650C wheel (or a "26" as the seller says) but not the head tube or steerer.
I may be off base thinking this (not the first time) but if I'm not missing something i do think that EROS frame is taller than 48cm

may not be whacked, just adjusted. BB still needs a min height off the ground still, even with 165 cranks, with smaller diameter wheels a shorter top tube can be designed and still avoid overlap. For the 5’ and under club smaller wheels are a good solution.
front end geometry can avoid the wheelbarrow steering.

not sure where the seller gets the idea wheels are 26inch. Those are clearly 700c

Posted 1 days ago just outside Lovell, MA

​​​​​​https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bi...728896053.html

Bianchi Eros Road Bike - $150 (Dracut)

Bianchi Eros 21 speed Road Bike , RX100 Shimano Components , Panaracer Vivezza 26 X 7/8 Tires


Look at the gap between the rear wheel and the seat tube. It's huge. No way is that a 700c wheel on that small a frame.

Same with the head tube. The top and down tubes would be close to touching for a small frame designed for 700c wheels. Smaller wheels means longer head tube.

26" and 650c used to be somewhat synonymous. I still have 26 x 1" tires that fit my 650c wheels with no problem.

As mentioned, using smaller wheels avoids toe overlap, at the expense of top-end gearing. Your 650c wheel will top out at a smaller gear than a 700c bike, all else being equal.

I'm a shorty at 5'4. I'm used to all this. My favorite rides are all on 650c frames.

A lot of 853 Steel bike for $175. For some reason I thought these usually were DuraAce bikes, with the Zurich being bascially the same frame with Ultegra.

Alert, alert, fair-condition Univega Gran Turismo with all the nice rack/fenders mounts. For the very tall. Ad says 62cm...but it looks maybe even taller. $300.

P.S. Looking at how high the seapost is jacked, the previous owner must have been huge!

I'd ask the seller myself to click me some but that would require a FB account!

I live and learn!
Never had much direct contact with road frames that run 26" or 650C (matching) wheels, maybe just a couple "Terry" style bikes with the single small front, "normal" rear.
I did seem the seller took pains to list the tires by brand and size, so that would have been a weird mistake to make, however most cannot use a tape measure on a bike frame to save a life!
