To all Peugeot PX10 enthusiasts. In 1970 I purchased a brand new PX10 for $250 Cdn and not being familiar at that time with dimensions, angles etc., I took the word of the sales staff that it had a 22" frame. I was tempted later on to trade-up to something Italian with Campi N.R. and never did record the PX 10 stats. I found the PX10 very comfortable to ride especially over rough road with those wonderfully springy 531 forks. In Sloans original book is an illustration of the exact same size of bike that he describes as a top line quality racing bike. According to a Peugeot PX10 web site, they list a 21", 23" and I think a 25" but no 22". My question is... Did the PX 10 come in a 22" frame size c to top and if so what were the top tube dimensions, angles and wheelbase length? Even though my subsequent bikes have been better finished, more responsive to ride and considerably more expensive, none have had that forgiving quality over the cobbles.
