Took delivery of this on Monday. I have hunted around and not been able to work out what model or age it is.
It has Columbus forks and rear dropouts. It came with Campagnolo BB and 105 headset as well as Cinelli Milano stem and Critinium bars.
It looks to me like the red has been re sprayed.
I like it a lot so will build it up and see how it rides. But I would really love to know what it is.

Thank you.

And thank you.

I've had lighter frames but I does look great.
I was intending to do a slow build for next summer. But may nick some bits off another frame so I can ride it a bit.

dito

that looks very nice !

Like the way they done graphics and the overall picture. Not screaming, not over the top, not too introvert ...pretty much right. I do know they also did a white/graphite one. That looked ace too 8)
