Hi,

Im currently in possession of a carbon frame which i believe dates from the 90s as it still has shifting bosses on the down tube!

I feel a hint of vitus and kestrel but i cannot tell!!!

Thanks for your input!

Don't think it's a Kestrel - too swoopy even for them.

Initially, I thought Corima Piuma but a Google search proved me wrong.

I suspect that it's one of the first generic carbon frames produced in the Far East around 2000 - the fork is pretty well identical to one I had a few years ago.

I may be wrong, but I have a faded memory of either peugeot or vitus having a carbon frame of that shape.

edit: I think I was wrong... the vitus ZX1 is similar, but not the same.

Remember that shifting bosses on the down tube are still used, as they locate the cable adjuster.

Didn't the ZX1 and its Peugeot cousin have a Vitus 992-style semi-integral headset?

I think they did, and I think they also had an integrated seatpost binder (with an allen key bolt on the side, in front of the seatpost), not an external one like this frame has.

I Googled the Peugeot / Vitus and it's not one of those. I reckon it's mid-late 90s.
