No idea myself, but it is pretty disctinctive with the square/round tubing and the bracing between seat tube and top tube, looks interesting :)

Definitely interesting . That square tube has thrown me, defo looks like 2000's era style with box stays and gussets all around. Reminds me of the 'free ride' frames that Merlin sold briefly around 2003. Wish I'd bought one looked great and bargains too.

It wasn't a cheep frame they sold a few 50 quid frames the same as the Merlin ones I had one for years this one came with a red anodized dropout and has btv stamped on it I think its a special edition team frame
