Interested in the Specialized. Reckon it would fit my 5'2" partner?
Is the Specialized 18" centre to centre? And is it 1" or 1 1/8" steerer? Edit: just saw you put 30.2 / 27 for headset dimensions which would presumably make it 1”
Hi didn't see this. Have PMd you.
Yes, it's too small for me at 5ft8.5 with long legs, unless I wanted a really aggressive fit. I imagine your partner would ride a very small (e.g. 15 inch) modern MTB, but with the horizontal top tube, shorter forks and short headtube of a 90s bike, you would want to size up to get comfortable. Worth checking her cycling inseam - floor to crotch . The standover height on this would be about 70cm, with 26x2.0 tyres. That's a guesstimate based on common BB height for 90s mtbs, plus 18 inches, minus 1 inch as the seat post extends above the top tube for the clamp.
18 inch centre to top. 1 inch steerer - 1993 frame. Fork from thereabouts too.
Will include a period-appropriate long (12cm ish) + 17degree quill stem too (25.4 bars) for £2.50 extra.
Red Genesis removed from sale. It's just the Grey Genesis and the Specialized Rockhopper still available for now.
That's great, cheers for the info. Will look into those measurements tomorrow but no worries if it gets snapped up by someone else in the meantime!
Cheers. That paint is all a little too much for me in a good way, so I'm going to DIBS this and send you a PM now.
Edit: I'm on about the Rockhopper. Sorry @jtfh! (Though I suspect at 5'2" your partner is probably best off with a 16" frame)
No worries - I think I was more into the jazzy paintjob than she was anyway. Enjoy!
All now sold/removed from sale.
Does the rockhopper happen to still be available?
Sorry I missed your reply to my wanted post! Is the grey Genesis still available by any chance?
