wanted 700c long top tube (550L) used conditions
« on: September 29, 2017, 09:30:05 PM »
Hi everybody. Proud owner of a 533s Club Tour (2006 ish model) but finding it too short now that I've changed its setup from drop to straight bars. Looking for a 700c Thorn frame same size of mine but longer top tube. Not an expert in Thorn bikes but I think I'm talking about a 550L frame. Looking for frame only.
Enjoy your Thorns.

Here my bike (consider that I've raised the saddle of half an inch after the picture was made). Just purchased a 130mm stem (present in the picture) but finding myself like a panda riding a baby tricycle. I mean not properly like that but I prefer use a bike with a balanced geometry and balanced components. Worried that the step up size will be too big now...
