picked this up for $10 today...

the top and down tubes are somewhat elliptical. the back support for the noodle is not that nice. it has remnants of an xt headset which kinda makes me think it was once loved. it has some weird little holes on the inside of the chain and seat stays. have not found a number yet.

I'd be hitting the Brodie catalogues to compare.
Looking for one with Range Concept tubing. Seeing the bulge in the seat tube lower, then '92 ish on.
I do not know Brodie's well though.
But not RM or Kona.
Or somebody else who used a similar design over over your side the pond.

Looks very similar to a 1990 Explosif.

Not sure that it's a Brodie though, the seat stay bridge and the way the stays meet the seat tube don't look right. Does it have a milled headtube?

You already have a 90's eXpresso right?

Looks nice regardless, bargain :D

The weird little holes are to let the gas out when welding or some such thing as that :? Most bikes have them
