Sorry to hijack the OP's thread, but JamesM, now you have me curious to what I have. Discounting the colour scheme, which we know varies from market to market, this one has ovalised TT at the head tube, and ovalised at the seat tube / BB join. 68mm shell, vert dropouts, same seat clamp and cable routing as the yellow frame. Forks are 1 1/8" with normal dropouts, and all of the dropouts have a threaded rack mount eye. Thanks,
Post a picture up
I reckon this yellow frame is 1991 or earlier. Reason for the 1991 or earlier is the internal cable routing on the top tube.
Depending on how old it is the horizontal dropouts indicate timberline or lower, although some of the older karakorams used to have horizontal drop outs as well I think.
Also it been converted to canti/V brakes at some point in its life.
Nice frame for a quid, they all ride really well I think - my Out Post was a blast
