Check it for toe-overlap, (though if they set it up with a really short stem and long cranks that can be improved). I'd also like to get a good perspective on the slope of the top tube.
mags... wrote:thanks Weg, I agree it's a really nice frame. Nice top tube angle, overall quite nicely proportioned. Is this the XXS then? Nice paintwork. Teschner do go for relatively large diameter tubing don't they, which on a small frame might make it look chunky, but this looks nicely balanced. If you're thinking of buying this bike and it fits right, then on looks I'd say go for it.

...dunno if that'll work, but it sounds reasonable......

I suppose if the budget dictates that initially I have to go lower specced on components than I'd like, I can always look forward to up-blinging periodically.

I'm a bit puzzled that the reach didn't feel right, so I need to try it again - and maybe then reassess wheel size. Don't like the colour.
weg wrote:I still might visit Baum. Glad I'm not alone in the thinking about justifying the custom price; maybe lower components just to get a frame that fits, given that it should be the last frame ever. I like your logic Sette. I was impressed with Oscar's Specialized too (same model as sachamc bought) so might try to find one for a longer ride.
