• 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?

  • Nope, sorry

  • Hi SB,

    Sorry I missed your reply to my wanted post! Is the grey Genesis still available by any chance?
