Hi mate. Is it too small or are you too large?? Hopefully neither...
Seat tube is 600mm (ctt), top tube is 580 (ctc), head tube 190 (overall).
As far as price goes I’d like £850...
I can take more/better photos as required.
I'll let him know and forward a photo. I think his bike has a headtube of 220-230, so that might deter him.
Btw I’m 6’3”. The stem is a 120 Thomson.
Thanks. I'll pass it along.
Lovely size but can't help feel that's pretty expensive for steel and sora?
yeah, definitely quite pricey for 531 and sora...
A bike for tall children?

Thanks to everyone who sent me photos/ told me about frames/bikes. My mate bought himself a groupset, so is only looking for a frameset rather than a full bike. I've asked that he make a choice so I can let you know about the frames you offered. Many thanks guys.
I have a very lightly used Raleigh Special Products Division IMI titanium frame with straight Pro carbon/alu fork (not shortened) on offer: 61,5cm c-t seattube, 57,5cm c-c horizontal toptube and 18 cm headtube. Looking for GBP550/€600.
More pic's by pm if wanted.
I'm on the hunt for a large framed full-build. 6ft5 and I've got a 60cm Raleigh Competition that I have a suspicion is too small for me. Based in London if anyone spots anything! Wouldn't want to go above £400. Thanks

Thanks to everyone who offered frames/bikes for my friend. He found himself an big Merckx Corsa from Belgium. Thanks for all your help/offers @Big_Ted @lsinclair and others. Much appreciated.
Looking for advice for a new frame please. I’m 6’6” and have always struggled getting the right fit. I’ve got fairly long legs and I suppose comparably short torso/arms. I’ll be using it for commuting mainly and also to go on decentish rides. Would like a fairly upright position as my back suffers on a long cycle.
I’ve been looking at a Surly Steamroller, as this is about bang on what I’m looking to spend (£500). However the 62cm frame seems to have a hefty top tube.
Alu or steel, not fussed.
Also been looking at the All City Big Block.
I'm very similar (except for long arms), I'd consider the large Surly sizes too long although 62 may be ok, but that's based on my preferences.
Do you have an idea of ideal stack and reach? If so https://www.cyclingabout.com/list-of-xxl-xxxl-bikes-for-tall-cyclists-62-63-64cm/ is my go-to whenever thinking about a new bike
EDIT: Just looked, the Surly is 6 cm lower and 2 cm longer than my ideal but within the range I've ridden (and enjoyed)
Condor Super Accaio frame for sellz soon.
61cm // in mint condition // on sale at Condor atm for £1,299
Thinking about pricing...
I have absolutely no idea what my stack and reach is. I've been trying to work it out for the last few days but to no avail.
I'm currently riding this aforementioned "T-Rex" frame, which is actually pretty comfy now I've put some wide risers on (pursuit bars prior). But the pedal/toe strike is less than ideal for a commuting bike. Another option is finding some forks with a 250mm steerer and a decent rake.
