    IF 19 steel Deluxe trade??
    Anyone holding a IF non disk (or disk) 20.5frame that they want to trade for a 19? Mine is just too small in the wrong places for the riding I do. Really want to keep a steel hardtail in the Quiver and would consider a trade for MFG's of the same ilk.

    How does someone buy a top shelf custom frame that doesn't fit them?

    He didn't actually say that the frame was custom made for 'him'.

    The guy is just looking for some help and wasn't asking to be outed to the world as a lame-arse.

    I'll bet there a zillions of riders out there that are riding frames that are 1 1/2" +/- the ideal size for them.

    Peace

    The reply is that it was a screaming deal. I am just older and less flexible, so I cant hang with the shorter TT and pushing the seat back or the stem forward anymore than I have it really throw the ride off (I have tried it). Maybe a bannana seat though....

    Thylacine, I'm 35+ and can look back and laugh at the silly things I've tried to make work in you life. Sorry to have offended your sensibilities.
