So chances of seeing 1 is slim.


Strangely I'm sure I spotted a red one in Chichester late last week. Didn't get the chance to get a close look as I was in a hurry but certainly looked like one.

check out this thread of mine from a while back, there is a pic of the colella in it. also have you noticed how similar the design is to the modern Cannondale Rize.


Even in 1994 there were quite a few very similar bikes out there, not like it was ahead of its time or anything like that.
