Y'all were right, just needed to be the right time of year.

Price Dropped, really need the space in the garage to train, dog and timbersports keep me on my single speed if I am on the bike at all.

Fat deal on a sweet ride, approaching painful to spin it at this price but lets make it happen.

Details on the wheelset? Rims, hubs, etc. Tough time to sell a bike, if you can hold on to it for another couple of months you will sell it in no time at that price. :-/

Sweet bike Adrian, if it were a 19" frame I'd be thinking a lot harder about it.. but you're just too tall man. glws!

Wheelset is stock, I will take a look at specs from the web.

I agree on being a bad time, but I have had this posted since August up here, no bites.

And it is a huge bike. I am going 6'5 and 260 these days, and it is the first bike I ever owned that fit me.

Looks like a cool bike!
Probably too big for a 6' 02" person?
34" inseam...

It might be about right, although depends on how you like the fit. This would be a comfortable bike for you although some people go down a size for agility. Honestly, if I was in a shop I would have to test this very bike with a shorter stem.

The specs on the 21" GF Xcaliber. Seat tube is 21" from center of bottom bracket to top of seat clamp. The length to the middle of the top tube (the traditional measure) is probably ~20.5". Standover is 33.9". Top tube effective length is 26.1". Frame reach is about 18.2". Head/seat angle is 69.6*/72* (must be Genesis geometry, that's pretty relaxed).

I ride a hard tail 29'er, a 20.5" Gunnar Rock Hound. Built it with a 80mm Fox Float similar to the one on Adrian's.

Standover on mine is 32.4", reach is 17" (with a 90mm stem), TT (effective) is 24.8" and seat tube measured center of BB to center of top tube is 20.5". Head/seat angle is 71.5*/73*.

My riding inseam in Sidis with no soles left is around 35" (pants inseam is 34", they are not the same), overall height is 6'0". I sized and built mine for comfort, it's an endurance bike (I do long races and tours) and don't like being cramped.

I have a 34" inseam, I am more torso than legs and it fits me just right, just not for someone under 6 feet unless they are exceptionally long legged.
