    hi all,
    Hoping for some sizing advice on a pinarello sestriere I am looking at purchasing.

    I am 6.2 in height and previously have been riding a late 80's cannondale 60cm aluminium frame, think it is a SR600 or SR800. It also had a 140mm quill stem, so long reach, which could be uncomfortable on a leisurely ride.

    The sestriere is a 58cm frame.
    Frame dimensions below:
    TT 57.5, ST 58 (c-c), 61 (c-c)
    I rode it and felt nice. It had a short 80mm quill stem.
    Just couldn't tell if it was right as it needed a bit more reach which I do realise can be changed very easily.

    Could be I'm just use to riding a bike for a long reach now.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Also is £500 a reasonable price for a sestriere with Campagnolo Veloce 8 speed groupset with campagnolo Mexico wheels. In a very clean state.

    Hope to hear from someone.
    Many Thanks,

    I have a Sestriere, and have owned it for about 15 years, having built it up from parts. It is a nice frame that steers well. Mine has a 56cm seat tube and I'm 5' 11, so I'd think that 58 would be right for you. I run a 120 mm stem. I have no idea about price, these classic bikes are worth what someone is willing to pay, and £500 is not much money for a very good classic. Bear in mind that the frame will take modern equipment - mine has Campag Centaur 10 speed.
