Having picked up another carbon frame to accompany my other one below, it got me curious about the original maker of this frame, Alan. Info seems to be quite scarce on the mountain bikes made by Alan, does anyone have any brochures, pictures or general info about them?

I have an early Carbon ALAN with an AMP style rear end waiting for refurb. I shall probably never get around to it, as projects are mounting up.
If anybody has any interest send me a PM, its a bit of a rare beast and £300 would buy it.

Hi , just for my curiosity.....

Your frame has printed "Alan" on headtube or seatstays or is bare aluminum?

Hi, there's no markings on either frame...just bare aluminium and serial number under the BB housing. However I will check again.

£300 for the frame, and with a little thought and work I would think it would be a show stopper, whats nice is the badges are still there too.
