A good friend of mine had a set of those on a Diamond Back Racing (DBR)Welded Carbon Fiber (WCF) frame back in the day.

The lasted him for a couple of years before the rim gave way at the sidewall - wheel was last seen hanging up in the horsy bar at Mark Papworths original Cyclo Montana Espania base (Fournales?).

Rider only weighed 9 stone - he then had the five spoke version which broke at the rivets. Both had really bad freehubs which ended up very wobbly.

Interesting bit of kit to look at but not reliable or usefull - perfect retro fodder then :lol:

Thats one of their 'bigger' bikini's :shock: It's made by a type of workers cooperative. Only sell via mail order. And run their web site using Mac's. :D
Haven't clue about the rims. I think its an early Klein Mantra??

The bike is identical to mine in shape, just that mine is all yellow with black lettering.
