I had the unsprung version of that saddle on my Racer. Actually pretty comfortable, but the ancient stitching started to come apart so I went to a ubiquitous Brooks B17.
If you still have that saddle and decide to let it go let me know. Anthony

So how tall is that frame? Looks huge!
Yes, like dnc1 said above...................how tall is that frame !! It's at least the 24" but might be the 26" !! If it is the 26", I haven't seen many of those.

This is a 24” frame. I am 6’2” so I like the taller bikes. I have one other 24” and of course my 90b is 23”. I would love to find a 26” IJ racer eventually. I had a 20” once and I felt quite funny on the bike.

Thanks @anders1.
I have a 24" Raleigh and it looks bigger than mine; I guess the long head tube (steerer) and consequently different frame geometry makes it appear so large, and the lack of tyres I guess.
Tall people on small bikes always make me smile, modern frameset geometry can be quite comicall!
What front hub is on that wheelset?

I believe the front hub says new departure model M but I can’t see it well because it still needs cleaning. Rear hub is new departure and I think is original to the bike?
