I need your wisdom guys.

I'm assuming you've seen the 650 Alex Singer on Ebay...what do you think? I'm considering writing the check, if it doesn't bid up too high.

I"m also concerned about fit. My daily rider is a 58x58 Mexican Benotto, which has to show a lot of seatpost. Judging from the pics I've seen of Herse's team at PBP, which had frames so large that it sometimes wasn't possible to clear the top tube while standing on the ground.

Anyway, what I'm asking is this: is it going to mess up that highly-vaunted SInger handling to substitute a longer seatpost on this bike? Is the shorter top tube going to leave me bunched up, or is this a classic randonneur geometry?
