Hey guys, I'm looking for a 48cm-49cm touring bike frameset. I have my road bike built up like a touring bike, but, it's just not what I need. Steel frame, hopefully a Miyata is out there with my name on it. Let me know if you are selling, or if you know of anything!

A vintage mountain bike would probably work great. I think for a frame that small you'd have to use 26 inch wheels anyway.
Damn that's nice, but wow, waaaaaaaaaay overpriced.

I've been very pleased with this bike and its quite affordable price. It handled last week's UPAF/Miller Lite Ride for the Arts 50-mile route quite admirably. I also like its spec and Jamis' design philosophy. Check it out at .
One thing that I discovered about the aurora is that they are sized a little big. I have a 50 and I'm 5'8".

Good luck trying out bikes!

Ah- if only you could find a Miyata 1000 or 1000 LT... Many term this bike as the "finest production touring bike ever made".

Jamis Aurora or Aurora Elite, since Jamis' sizing tends to be a bit large. Jamis also tends to proportion handlebar width, crank length, frame tube diameters, and controls to the seat and top tube lengths. This makes for a consistently good ride no matter how tall the bike gets.
Not sure what size it is, but there is a built up small Long Haul Trucker at Ciclo Urbano.

I know someone trying to sell a 48cm soma smoothie. It's steel but it's road racing frame. Contact me if you're interested in her bike and I'll get you in touch with her.

I think it's a 43 cm. It's lil', for sure.

Ha. I guess it's way way too small.
