    I have a Pace RC31 that's 440mm a-c. Not sure if that's tall enough for you.

    Got an excellent condition de-stickered Principia aero frame 54cm top tube. Made in Denmark, 27.2mm seatpost, bsa bb, 1 1/8" head tube. Builds into a nice aggressive ride. No mudguard mounts but plenty of room for 28mm tyres so should be room for mudguards if you wanted them.
    After £85 for the frame. I have a nearly new Principia headset and Isaac carbon/alloy fork that you can have for and extra £40.
    I have also got lots of really nice bits to build into a complete bike if you're interested.

    An half-hearted bump for a reduction in price to £575 for the frame, fork and headset. If anyone wants the frameset, wheels (inc nearly new Vittoria Corsas), nearly new White Industries square taper chainset (170mm, 46t ring), Thomson elite seatpost, Campag super record brakes, Nitto quill stem adapter and a nice choice of stem (Thomson X2, Deda superzero, Easton ea70...) delivered to London for £825 then let me know. All the components are in very good/excellent condition, excluding the wheels - see comment below.

    TWO THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW: the original stops for internal brake cable have been removed at some point so the cable runs through the frame in a complete length of outer and second is that there are two cracks on the rear driveside hub shell. At some point the rear wheel will need a new hub. The wheels are round and true and braking surfaces are good.

    I have worked out that this frame will take 650b wheels as well, which opens up a lot of options for modern tubeless rims and tyres. I work as a wheelbuilder and was contemplating building a set with silver Velocity a23 rims, silver Bitex RAF/RAR12 hubs and Sapim CX ray spokes with some nice 25mm tubeless tyres. Anyway, something to keep in mind.

    At present I need the room and the funds.

    Thanks

    I've removed a few carbon PT arms. I use an old draper bearing puller and an headset spanner behind the crank arm with a thin but of pulp type cardboard between spanner and crank arm. Seems to spread the load sufficiently to avoid damage.

    I have, but more by managing to get covid (finally), and subsequent laziness. I could definitely use the space and the money. Can i tempt you? I will definitely listen to reasonable offers for all or parts of the bike.

    Admittedly, the Spooky is pretty much a cross bike. The Golden Wonder is a first gen IF deluxe that was super tatty so i had a disc tab added and a powder coat.

    Got a lovely Principia 54cm tt.
    Made in Denmark, takes standard 1 1/8" fork, bsa bb, 27.2mm seatpost and will easily take a 28mm tyre. Destickered but excellent condition. The frame is anodised black - very stealth.
    I'm near brighton, but happy to post or meet you some of the way.
    After £75 for frame or £100 with Isaac carbon/alloy fork plus postage (if needed).
