    Default WTB: Short TT / Tall HT frame

    I was sure I'd posted something up about this but I can't seem to find the thread now.

    Anyway, I'm down to 1 bike and would really like to source a second as soon as possible. I ride a short top tube and tall head tube so finding bikes to fit me is a struggle, but if I'm going to find something of the right calibre anywhere it'll be here...

    I can run up to a 55cm-56.5cm TT and need an 18cm HT for external headset, or at least a 19cm HT with an integrated headset (based on fairly standard angles). Aside from that I'm happy to consider any material and frame style.

    I'm in Australia which seems to pose an issue with shipping, but if we can find a way to work around that I'd love to know what you've got. I have money waiting and will obviously fund shipping if we can find the right solution.

    Keen for a Crumpton, Hampsten, Parlee, Pegoretti (Marcelo or Resp.), Moots, IF, Colnago and others. Is there anything out there?!

    In case it helps at all, or opens up shipping options that might have been prohibitive to Australia, I'll be in the UK for a week in early October so a frame could be shipped there for me to bring back to Oz.

    If that Soulcraft had gears it'd be perfect! The Serotta is, on the other hand, far too red for my liking.

    Thanks though, keep 'em coming!

    I have a 56cm 2013 Trek Domane frame that I am selling. They quote 17.5 headtube, but with the 8cm bb drop and longer fork span it is effectively like a 19cm headtube.
    Frame is fresh. Less than 500 miles. Has a subdued and unique P1 paint job.
    PM me for more info.

    I have a 54.5 TT Zanconato with a 20 HT. is this short and tall enough for you? It is too short and tall for me, so I will be willing to part with it if you are interested.

    Tempting Jon - assumed it had gone judging by the eBay listing! Could be game if we can get around the payment issues we had on the wheels...

    What happened to your new BAUM?
    Just got myself measured up for a custom Rourke 953 - i evidently have long femurs so need a taller seat and headtube and 55 top tube. Not quite a tall as yours though...

    You have several new emails from me, including geometry chart, cut sheet, and a few pics. Let me know if you are interested.

    I actually had issues with both, but it's a long story and here is not the place to share.

    Due to a lack of stuff I liked becoming available (and thanks all for the offers and pictures etc.) I cracked - I've ordered a Gaulzetti Cazzo!
