Yah..you take large frames. In 1990 they were painted in either black/white with green decals or red with white decals..I picked up a red one.

I typically ride a 19-20 inch mtn bike(59cm top tube)..the one I got was an 18"..though the top tube is 56.6cm..the same as my road bike sizing. Given the additional reach inherent with a drop bar conversion..I'm hoping the 18 with fit right. We'll see..first time at this. I haven't gotten the bike into a ride-able condition yet..should giving it a spin in a couple days.

Thank you! for your contributions to mtn-->drop bar conversions over the years. I ran across your 950 conversion from a couple years ago..nice bike. I did some research back to 2005ish and your posts have been a great help.
