That sound like a nice, fast, light frame.


Ah, Mel Bentley - wasn't he the guy that had the great little ads in the back of Cycling Weekly?
"Don't buy the wife a handbag, buy some Campag"

Sorry for the thread diversion,
Mark.

I have no idea, but I really hope so because that tag line is outstanding. :mrgreen:

Have owned this bike for a few years.
Liked the ride so wasn’t worried about authenticity - and the Cinelli bottom bracket told me it wasn’t a cheap and cheerful frame.
Moving it on and off the turbo has chipped the paint on the rear dropouts and guess what, they are stamped “Dave Lloyd”
So a little sandpaper and I have recovered the frame number: LL90176
Any info gladly received!
Thanks

Definitely need more pix.

Looks like a nice bike from the register, LL90176 is a 1990 made Road frame originally ordered by Chris Quinn and made of very tasty Columbus TSX.

Thanks for the info. TSX tubing.....better than i have imagined! 2 photos attached. She was powder coated at some stage....not the prettiest but ideal all weather bike. Rides beautifully - and certainly more zip than my old Raleigh Record Ace. The forks, I am pretty sure, are not original but there is no evidence of any damage from an accident and i have ridden her regularly for 5 years.
The conundrum I now have is that I have just picked-up a Bob Jackson 731os in pearlescent cream enamel with its all-original Shimano 6400 (Ultegra) tri-colour group set.
Cannot afford to run them both - and i had never given any credence to the Dave Lloyd stickers so hadn't thought it worthwhile stripping the powder coating and enameling her.

NICE!

Classic Dave Lloyd paint, and nice colour combinations too.

The carbon forks may well take some of the sting out of any rough roads, which can be a little wearing at the end of a long ride.

Enjoy! 8)
