24" Fuji Absolute -- Old School


Found this at an auction website (see foto below). The bike,
Fuji Absolute, is listed as a 24 inch size. Does anyone know
roughly the stand over height? I thought I would ask before
I drive for an hour to get there.

just on average, considering where the top tube intersects the head, in realation to the downtube... I'd say 31+"
I'm just thinking of what mine looks like (the 'space' between TT and Down tube at the head tube)
BUT... there are other factors
Ask the seller to measure from the floor to the top of top tube... make sure tires are inflated

This is a police-auction bike, so I don't think the
auctineer would agree to do the measurement for
me over the phone. My inseam is 30.5 inches with
my shoes on; so if you are correct about it being
31 inches, this bike should barely fit me.

This bike comes with four other bikes of Huffy-persuasion.
The lot is currently bidding at $20, but it might very
well go up. I was thinking about selling the four Huffy
bikes to pay for refurbishing the Fuji bike, if I win the

What do yall think? Good deal? Good bike for touring
and/or commuting? Will I be able to find parts that
fit this classic?

Thanks for reading.
