Wow that is a really nice price for a Reynolds 853 frame and I think one of the best looking 29 frames out there and cool paint job its begging for a purple handle bar. My best advice is go short stem and wide bars 760mm or bigger you will love it.

i was thinking of a thomson 90mm stem and a thomson ti handlebar at 730 with a 6* sweep
