I would almost give body Parts for a vintage large frame Rock Hopper or Stump Jumper.

About 4/year on CL around here. Check CL for your area every day or so. Rock Hopper 24 speed Blue/white 21" frame was $100 in August, needed chain and some brake parts.

I'd like a 22" or 23". I have a 20" trek 830 and love it, but it is too small. I got it as a 20 yr old like new garage hanger for $70. I'm 6' and have 36" fully extended in the saddle to the bottom of the pedal stroke. The Trek seat post and stem are maxed out at 33". Large CList MB in DC are outrageously priced. The Ebay offerings are stripped frames with outrageous shipping. I'd hate to strip the nice, but small, Trek to put a larger old frame on the road. The little Trek has low end group. It is a little clunky, but I've got over 3K miles on the bike and everything works. doesn't shift well on a grade with tension on the system. The frame is actually very light; about 32 lb. fully decked out with Dyno hub, light set, fenders and rack. When I end up with the large frame I will make it the commuter and return the Trek to the woods and mountains.

Oh that's a cinelli stem and Mary bar. pretty cool! I've replaced the Mary bar with a north road bar that has about an inch more rise and hyper extended the seat post since this picture. Still too small.
