Either they have two frames to sell, or they listed it twice by mistake, but it was listed the 2nd time a few days later... email them, see what they say.

A 49cm top tube on a size 56? Is this the seller's home brew way of measuring (which doesn't even look c-c) or is it just too early in the morning for me?

a) a mistake
b) people in japan have the shortest reach and require short top tubes
c) or its an example of a scammer who doesn't know anything about bike geometry but has listed the item twice in hopes of collecting twice and not delivering
LOL. And I loved the "doesn't have any dents" statement.Kristin

Its not car for crying out loud. I would hope it has no "dents" in it.

The bike is 56cm measured apparently from the bottom of the BB to the top of the seat collar, so who knows the true frame size. And the top tube appears to be measured from the intersection with the headtube to the intersection with the seattube, ratherthan c-c. It's possible it could be a 52 c-c size bike with an equivalent TT.

Can you tell I'm bored on a Friday?
