Cheers Dave_H i think youve proved it for me.

Your ebay linked 02 shares the same cable routing path along the top tube, i think that seals it.

Shame the drop outs are not so easly visable on the linked images.

Cheers all for your help.

Externally butted head tube?
Gussets?
Externally butted BB shell?
Front facing seat tube slot?
Top mounted, hydraulic hose compatible cable routing via stress reducing, side welded bosses?
:?:


:idea:



It's a 1998 O2 :!:




Many thanks to http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=3380 for making me look clever for a second.

Ok, i have to confess i kept this a little quiet to avoid being out bid. The frame was up on ebay as part of an assorted lot of on the whole rubbish bike bits.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=003&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=130098729879&rd=1&rd=1

I noticed the frame in the picture and emailed the seller for more images of it. (the ones in the first post)

I have no idea what the other bits are like, i only enquired about the Orange frame.

Well i won the auction for the bargain price of£10 and will be off over to bristol some time this week to collect.

Cheers for all your help with the ID of the frame, and i look forward to posting pics of my first Yorkshire (ish) bike when its built up.
