Nice one, good to know. Yeah the stem included looks like a decent length, so I'll take a punt on it and go for a test ride.
Here's some pics (and no, that campag wheel on the front unfortuantely isn't included in the £200 price)
FWIW im 6ft1 with long legs and rode a 58 when I had one.
Hm, I think the frame is really designed more for the use of a drop bar, as far as I can tell. I had that 130mm stem, and then an Easton bar with an additional 85mm reach. I think you are likely to find this a rather "short" setup with that flat bar - but a test ride will tell!
Sale also includes drops so will make sure to give a go with those fitted too
I’m 5,12 and ride a 56 PC, but have also had a 54 PC as well. The 56 is a better fit, but the 54 wasn’t a killer. Hope this helps.
(Pic is the 56)
If you can be 5’12” then I’m 6’-2”.
I rode a 54 and is 6" as well. 140mm stem.
Should have said, I’m running a 110 stem with 42cm SWorks Fly bars on the 56.
Assuming the overlap on a 45cm PC will be fairly severe on the road? My partner is interested in getting one but doesn't want to commit to a track only bike as she hasn't tried it yet.
I'm tempted by a FXE as a road fixed type thing. Has anyone managed to squeeze anything bigger than 25c under guards?
I got bored and rebuild this pile of alu
Finally joined the pre cursa gang.
Fwiw I had 28s plus 35mm guards on my pre-cursa with a road fork
Ah, good to know, thanks!
Just stumbled across an old photo of my pre cursa!!
I used to ride miles and miles on this thing and the thought of riding 50 plus miles on a fixed gear again hurts my knees!
First post- my 54cm pre cursa at lee valley a couple of months ago. It's done well at LVVP and HH so far and we're going to a fixed beers crit on the 24th.
Looking to convert my FXE to a front disc brake. Any suggestions as to an affordable/suitable fork?
The bike is mainly used for commuting.
Waiting for a pair of 88mm carbon wheels for this one
What size frame do you 6ft5 guys ride?
I've been using a 60cm. It's quite long but with a couple spacers under the stem it fits great
my pre cursa frame and fork from a leader (not sure which), bought it like this and i reckon it looks rather sweet
Weird moment today walking out of my office, turning the corner and seeing my FXE locked up - thats odd I didnt leave it there!
Ah - I sold it six months ago.
3T rotundo's, cane creek levers, spesh phenom saddle, sugino crank, etc. definitely my old bike. Made me feel quite nostalgic
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
