I recently bought a bike with this frame which I don't seem to find anywhere. The closest I could get is a Giant mcm frame, but mine doesnt seem to be made out of carbon fibre. It has lugs although I believe they are made out of different matterial then the tubes. Cable holders arent wielded. They look stamped which makes me think that this frame could be made out of magnesium. The only thing written thaht seems like an original decal is d. R. U.G. Everything else lokks manualy glued. There is no serial number on the bottom of BB. Nothing written inside.
If you have any suggestions or thoughts, please dont hesitate to express yourself.

P.S. Does anyone recognize this seatpost? Seems to be shortened maybe thats why nothing is written on it.

I'm NO expert but it looks more similar to a 1993 Trek 9800 OCLV , although your pics being upside down make it harder to view

The mounts for the brake bosses are quite distinctive as is the seat tube which is fluted around the front mech on some OCLV Treks ...which would help identify a specific model/year should it prove to be (or not) a Trek -

perhaps one for My_Teenage_Self to advise upon or shoot me down in flames

Its not a Trek and the cable stops could be riveted but we need better pics

It annoying me because I know theres a red one of these on the site somewhere.

* but the a 9800 pops up with the bits in all the right place

The only thing that's NOT doing it for me with a 9800 is the seat tube

its not fluted around the front mech on the O.P's frame compared to the below

Interesting to know what it turns out to be...
