This is a bit of a coincidence we were only talking about Frejus bikes on our Sunday club run. One of my old cycling mates had just given me a photocopy of an original Jaggard Mills catalogue. These were the British distributors for Frejus. 1950 wheelbase lengths: Supercorsa 41": Corsa 40.5": Strada 42.25": Hope this answer your query.

Best wishes and be lucky. Michael Butler Huntingdon UK.
