    Looking for a nice 58cm-60cm 700c lugged touring bike or frameset with horizontal top tube and with clearance for at least 35mm tires with mudguards.

    I'm looking for something along the lines of a Miyata 610 or 1000, Specialized Expedition, Trek 720, Centurion Pro Tour, Panasonic Pro Touring - though would be equally happy with a nice modern frame if the price is right.

    I'm not in a rush so please send a DM even if you only come across this in a year's time - I'm happy to play the long game to get the right frame!

    Let me know if you're selling or have any other suggestions for bikes which might fit the bill and I can keep an eye out for

    Thanks!

    Looking for a decent 50cm mixte bike (or possibly frameset?). Just something for my sister to use as a run around. Reynolds 531, Shimano 600 with Wald basket would be ideal but open to ideas. Only instruction is "nothing too bright"!

    Many thanks!

    All good points - thanks for the feedback! I've never liked riding front heavy but try to balance loads about 3/4 on back and 1/4 on front. This alleviates issues whilst climbing and I feel keeps handling as nimble as possible.

    Ortlieb rollbacks don't look as cool though - I feel that. Maybe I'll try shifting the weight around a bit and see if I change my mind

    As a relative newby, can someone explain to me the implicit preference for front racks over rear racks in this thread? Or is it just for A E S T H E T I C S ???

    I'm looking for a decent silver 26.2mm seat post. I can only find a few for sale online and they're all really shit quality.

    Ideally, it'd be a classic aero seat post but I can't be fussy! Doesn't need to be very long, I guess 300mm will be more than enough
