I'd love to know if any of you know what this could be?!

At first I thought it was a Corima Viper or a Vitus 992 - my memory is a little hazy and it's not either of those!

I want to say it's an early ONCE era Giant TCR. Anyone else?

Looks similar to an '89 Trek 5000 with that internal seat post clamp.

Was thinking its like an Ambrosio Stelvio that I had

....but the seat clamp is too distinctive.

Maybe a Trek OCLV or as mentioned above 5000. The seat clamp configuration has got to be the clue!

It's not a giant, the early ones with horizontal TTs were lugged, and the TCRs that ONCE made famous were sloping. The carbon weave on the seatstay looks very like the weave on my cadex though...

It might be a Trek, but I can't find any Treks that look exactly the same.

Any markings on it anywhere? What thread is the BB? seatpost size?

It looks late 90's or even early 00's to me, most carbon frames were lugged until the late 90's

Any pics of the stickers on the headtube and seattube?

That type of seatpost clamp reminds me of look, vitus, TVT.... european builders.
