Ideally you ride a BB-saddle height of about 67-74 cm. (Pubic bone height 78-85cm, please measure this instead of asking me if it will fit you if you are xxx cm tall?)
In the photo the saddle height is 75cm.
56cm lugged steel, compact geometry, has braze ons for fenders and downtube shifters. It's Japanese OEM made for Shimano (downtube has a sticker that says EX Dura Ace, so it was a pretty high end frame). Rides very good and true even though doesn't look great, well worth a new paint job. Semi-horizontal dropouts on the rear.
Sugino RD2, 165mm. 42t single ring
Surly flip flop hubs mated to 700c Alex DA-22 rims. 17t fixed cog.
The whole setup would make a great indestructible commuter and last very, very, very long.
Cinelli stem, Tange headset both very good. New chain. No play in bottom bracket.
Saddle is a black Selle Anatomica (not pictured)
I can add a new set of Tektro 556 (old style nutted) silver coloured calipers (front and rear). This would be good if you are going to commute regularly and need a rear brake, or if you want to change to 650B wheel size and build a randonneur out of this, for which the frame is a perfect candidate since the BB height is tall enough. Add $40 for calipers.
I commuted on this for years (I've had this for 10), I'm selling it because I have discovered I fit much better on a 59cm, and have two other similar bikes that fit me perfectly.
