Got this on a vintage Kona. 27.2 dia 300mm length.

On one sidev of the cradle says: patent pending.

Other Side has degress marked from 35 to 0 and 35 again.

Any ideas! ?

I'm stumped. Early Thomson Elite/ Control Tech?

American I think.

Don't think so. It's too well tooled and the graphics look etched for an in house job.

It's definitely posh, probably had the logo anodised on the post but
long gone now. Circa 1990-93 going by the rest of the components - early
Hope screw on hubs.

I was thinking that too. Compared the clamp to a few Control Tech but there
a lot of intricate CNC going on here and CT look quite plain in comparison.

Any US components gurus out there ;)?

I had a CT post on an AMP B3 of mine which looked virtually identical. I don't have any photos of it otherwise I'd have posted one up :oops:
