Hi guys!
I'm happy to show to you my new-old (unknown*) alu-carbon road bike!
i've bought it for pennies and with some free weekend and a lot of patience i've finished it, trying to ensure to "build" an efficient roadbike...
The frame looks like an old Alan but doesn't have any pantography or any other sign that could confirm it, so it doesn't an Alan, but some copy (if someone could have more info I could redraw the logo or something else to complete it)...


Frame: "CarbonValley" for "Donnay" 55cm c/f vertical tube x 55c/c ht"

Fork: 1" Aluminum

Headset: Campagnolo Mirage threaded 1"
Stem: Quill 1" 100mm 26.0 3ttt
Handlebar: 3ttt
Grips: ITM carbonlool

Brakes: Shimano 600

Shifters: Shimano 600 8v index
Front Derailleur: Shimano 600
Rear Derailleur: Shimano 600
Cassette: Shimano DuraAce HG 8v 11-25
Cranks: Campagnolo Veloce 54-39
Crank Bolts: Campagnolo
Chainrings: Campagnolo
Chainring bolts: Campagnolo
Bottom Bracket: Campagnolo Ita square
Pedals: Shimano XT old (90s?)

Hub Skewers: Shimano DuraAce
Rims: Ambrosio Excellence red
Hubs: Shimano DuraAce 36h

Tyres: Eleven CentoColli 21mm
Tubes: Schwalbe 700 x 19-21

Saddle: SelleItalia Filante
Seatpost: Aluminum Aero Profile, 25.0mm x 200mm (waiting for a Thomson Elitè 25.0x330)
Seatpost Binder: -

Weight:? dunno.

(unknown*) = i'had the confirmation that "CarbonValley" (Matera-Italy) produced the frame with an agreement with alan that supplied the lugs of the "record" model. "Carbon Valley" produced the frame for the belgian company "Donnay". :D

Hi, looks like an early 90's Specialized Allez Epic Carbon to me, probably with non-standard forks. Google it and see what you think.. :)

Thanks Donkey Oaty! i've just search but unfortunately the Specy had smaller aluminum parts if compared to this one...and more regoular carbon fiber... on this one, the cromatic effect remind me some part in kevlar or similar...or an 97-98 giant mtb frame...

I was going to suggest Giant, or how about Liyang, they did a couple of MTB frames that used very similar construction.

Hi, hmmm, point taken. How about a Guerciotti? Very similar to Alan and I remember that they did do a Carbon/Alu like the Spesh....

Cheers,

Donkey.

Giant introduced the "cadex", but it was "a little bit" elegant in the shape... a great frame!
I've search for the Liyangs, probably could be one of them, but they adopted different sistem in the intersection between seatstays and vertical tube...
thanks :)
