Whilst it is certainly a beautiful frame, I doubt that it would be stiff enough to be raced and be competitive against modern frames....


Without any doubt Niels Albert would still race satisfactory results on it, but I doubt anyone on here is browsing Retrobike looking for bicycles to be up front in serious competition.


Sorry if I gave the wrong impression, I'm not knocking your frame at all, it would make a classy and rare retro ride. I was referring to Mike's post that this frame should be built up and raced.


No problem. Nor I or my bike felt offended :) Even the fastest space age carbon rig riding guy at the starting line realizes he is the loser when seeing this bike lining up next to him. Matter of style :lol:

I'd ride it in CX now. It's modern compared to my retro CX bike!

I think it's lovely and would have it like a shot but short of room (and cash!)

Would you be interested in a trade?

The reason for selling is to create some space again. Not for new bikes, but for breathing and living :wink: So I am sorry, I am not interest in trades in the 1st place. Unless it something very small and desirable :lol:
