You are far too tolerant. He was asked and then he asserted that the frame is straight. This is fraudulent, period. Deliberate or blatant ignorance of truth has become way too permissible imo.

26 x 1 3/4 is a very old British size with a 571 mm bead. Is that what you want? If you are wanting 26 x 1.75, that's an entirely different kettle of fish. Mountain bike, 559 mm bead.

Weinmann Alesa's were yeoman rims from the 50's through the 70's, I'd hazard a guess that only Mavic, or Rigida models were more common as far as alloy rims go.
