|Hello fellow riders...
I wanted to know if anyone in here has ridden or has knowledge of the Venturi frame by Breezer.
Breezer's site (very little info):
There is one for sale in the marketplace section:
Would appreciate any kind of feedback.
I just picked up one of these frames used as a weekend project. Since I have so many parts laying around in boxes, thought I mount them and give myself a second bike to ride.
I picked it for two reasons:
1. I have short legs and a long torso, so the frame's 52cm c-t seat tube and 56cm c-c top tube fits my body.
2. I think the frame looks cool and retro.

|worked at a shop that used to sell them--rode a few and had a few friends who rode them. Nice bikes. Nice paint. Designed by Joe Breeze and made in Taiwan. Light with a nice responsive steel ride. One of the first "compact" style frames I was aware of. Should make a great second (or primary) bike. Enjoy!|

|Thanks for the feedback on the frame.
I also found out in the meantime that the tube set is by Ritchey: Ritchey Logic Prestige.
The paint scheme is taken from an old Schwinn Excelsior bike that was used by Joe Breeze as the frame for some of his early mountain bike creations.

|You mentioned that there were early compact frames?
Did riders just fit a tall stem on these?
