They both look very nice. I have the 86, an 85 that I got from Robbietunes and an Carbon, and they are all one size too large. They just don't come up for sale locally here very often.

I have a mint 86 Ironman in the next size up. It is too big for me, but yours would be perfect. Want to trade frames? It's literally in 9/10 condition. I can post a pic tomorrow.
