I can see the problem. I ride with a 50 tooth chainring. Hence lower on the down tube there was just enough space for the front mech. Tune also provides very thin helpers to attach the front mech but in my case I could use a slightly thicker one by shimano.

there is close to no room! in thinking it might have been build as a TT frame set,

my cousins has a brass on for the front mech, and it also features a 1 1/8" headtube!

1,1/8 headtube??? Weird! Actually it doesn't look like a Voss... too nicely made and bullet seat stays. you sure?

With a 50 tooth ring I've got about 1mm of clearance. No problems tho...

I've got a MTB too... much stiffer in comparison.

Indeed. To nicely made. When all Voss bikes were made like that they surely wouldn't have gone out of business :)

Mine has numerous flaws.
- limited rear wheel clearance
- seatpost more like 27,0 then 27,2
- welds unregular and with sharp edges
- rear brake attachment only with numerous rings to fill up a strange large hole
- decals damaged
- top tube cable guides to narrow to fit the 6mm brake cable where the middle one was dented

Most of the bikes I saw beeing sold were not nearly as nice as mine.

Just googled and my previous assumption may have been a little premature:

http://www.vossbikes.com/

Not Italian however. American but probaly made in China.

Not them. Voss was from the North of Italy.
