It's rather disheartening seeing all of the mint 3Rehsho frames that are in the 53-56CM size range but never seeing any that are 59-62CM.

$400?! That's a great find. My bike karma seems to be peaking out, I feel I'm overdue for this frame. I'm willing to drop a pretty penny for that one 60CM I find, though.

A 59 might be a little too short for you, I would suggest bumping up to a 61 centimeter frame.

You could always chop your fork if you wouldn't want spacers with the Chris King headset.
