One of my bikes however this is too small for me (and will go in the for sale section soon) but would like to know more about the frame, all I know is that it is a Deltec

Does anyone know when this frame dates from?

I'm guessing that it is far too modern for this section and probably this site.

Nice bike, I'd post it up in the post '98 section though, you may get a better response to your question & maybe an answer to what year it is (I have no idea)

Yes it is Retrobike, but a lot of riders ride modern bikes too, it's rumoured even the guv'nor has a modern bike!

What point are you making? John owns a car, does that mean retrobike now caters to cars? Surely if you have a modern bike and want to get someone to identify that modern bike why not go to a site that specialises in modern bikes rather than one that specialises in old bikes.
I am trying to help the OP as it is unlikely that they are going to get much interest here. Even if it's posted in the post 98 section are there honestly people who only ever visit that section and won't have seen it here. It's been up for a week with no interest so let's be honest with the OP -retrobike is not the best place to ID your modern bike.

Best bet is to try STW, Bikemagic or some other modern bike site. Likewise if you want to sell it, you will get a greater response from sites dedicated to modern bikes like this.

But if the parts are anything to go by it'll be from mid to late noughties

I'm not making a point, it's just a statement about a bike & it's owner

People talk about cars on here too. Again, not making a point, just making a statement

Maybe the OP doesn't know that other forums exist, maybe due to the way of some of the posters come across he doesn't like those forums, maybe he has posted on other forums and they didn't know what year it was either & they said, "hey those guys over on Retrobike know a lot about interesting bikes, maybe they might know what year it is". I'm not telepathic so I don't know which of the above is the case.

You may be right, a more modern biased forum may know the answer, they may not. What's the harm in asking a question on any forum?

If you only want to look at/talk about/discuss retrobikes then I'd ignore the rest of the forum as it seems to get you a little wound up, as your 'location' says, I'd not be so melodramatic, it's only a funking bike.

Thanks for the information, Bikemagic provided me with the information, a site I had never heard of. I actually thought the frame was much older but turns out to be from around 2004.

Sure, there's no harm in asking but if after a week no one has answered it then surely it's more helpful to point the OP elsewhere rather than pontificate about the inclusive nature of this forum. No one on here knows anything about this bike otherwise someone would have answered, even if it had been posted in the right section of this site.

As far as discussing retro bikes, I thought that was the point of retrobike.co.uk, that is why it existed in the first place. If i wanted to talk about cars, modern bikes or other stuff i would go to other sites where people know something about them.
And I think that should answer your final self-satisfied and smug point; I do avoid the other sections of the forum as they have nothing to do with retrobikes.
