Even though the old bar tape was rather ugly, I didn't mind it. The black does look pretty good though.

How does it ride?

Very interesting. Who build these? Peugeot? Or were they built by someone else.

Any racing pedigree?

I haven't any idea who makes the frames, i always presumed peugeot had fabricated them, but it does look very much like a TVT frame..

It does look like it's a TVT. Strange how Peugeot went about selecting the manufacturers to use their frames and rebadge them. I know they used to carry the Vitus 979 aluminium frame, but then for carbon frames they used Alans and, apparently, TVTs. I have no idea why they didn't just use the Vitus carbon frame because it's very similar and they were already doing business with Vitus. And it also seems strange that they at one point switched from Alan to TVT or the other way around.
