Very similar to the Torus with the same top tube cable guides, seat tube cable guides and aluminium insert in the seat tube.

US version of the Dynatech Torus, nice Ti frames but only worth about $260 - $280 CDN

Is that used? £175 for a nos ti frame is cheap as chips?


Yes that's all I paid for NOS / ex display Torus in November last year.
Have to admit I was surprised that the well used one on ebay this week went for £161.

You got a cheap one then, I'd say the one this week was about right.

I'd have to agree based on what I've seen used examples go for on here, so lucky you.

Is it only me that thinks the top tube / head tube weld looks really ropey with signs of poor penetration ? :(

WD :D

No, I agree. Certainly don't look like the lovely, neat plasma arc welds on my frame.
