Sounds perfect for a short torso/smaller stature person.
Can you please send me those digi pics of that bike, George?
Just as a reminder to any potential buyer, I have a dwindling suppy of the original McLean down tube decals available (that is the only decal for this model, there was no head tube decal) They are free, not to owner but to be sent to any of the excellent professional bicycle paint shops.
Also, interesting to note, at 50 CM that is one short top tube! George, has it got a bit of front wheelo & toe overlap? (not a necessarily a bad thing in my opinion)
