Hi All

I have an Unidentified frame and was hoping someone on here might have an idea who made it ....
I only really have the serial number and Pictures to help

Serrial Number : BN9412970

So I am presuming it is a 1994 model but thats all I have to go on so far

Thanks for any help identifying this frame , It will be built and riden even if I do not find out but would be nice to know :D

It is obviously a Ritchey, it says so on the dropout.

True... but Ritchey dropouts were used on quite allot of frames made by other companies as far as I know ...

The cable guide on the head tube like that seems quite distinctive :?

The Ritchey-branded dropouts as used on other frames were separate units with the stays inserted, afaik. Also, they only had the 'TR' logo, not the full Ritchey script like those above. (I could be completely wrong)

No, dropouts like that appear on other bikes. With the writing on as well. Also the stays are welded to it, it's how the frames are made, even in this picture.

Just that doesn't look like the Ritchey I know... for a start all had pierced seat clamping in the stays ?


It does look well made though and not bog standard.
Different mounts, noodle and a tidy looking seatclamp, neat welding.
Familiar but I don't remember.
