The builder was Phil Roe and not Steve......used to ride with hom out of Hull Coureurs in th 1970s! Have just been looking at another of his frames which a friend has had from new...might be my next project.
The set up at the bottom bracket with regards to the cut outs and over bracket routing for cables looks remarkably like that on a 1984 Bob Jackson I am working on at present.
It's me that's got the name wrong then
Could have sworn it was Steve, oh dear.
Almost as bad as Wikipedia.....................................
Don't think Derek had anything to do with the frame business. He only rode them. He had a nice aero tubed TT frame, possibly Columbus as the 'flat' part on the downtube was quite 'thin', thinner than Reynolds I reckon.
