Up for grabs is my lovely rusty Vicious Cycles Metal Guru frame from 1999.
All 8 tubes are of Ritchey Logic spec Dedacciai 18MCDV Heat treated double butted steel, equal to 853 in spec,, making it "very light on it's feet." (Thanks Carl :wink: ))
Frame size is 19.5" centre-top, with top tube 22.5" actual, 23.0" effective,, c-c, and it weighs in at a scant 1.75lbs (well under 4 lbs!).
The frame has plenty of surface rust, but the tubes are sealed, so the insides are probably fine. Having thrashed this round the woods quite a bit, I'm 100% confident in it's structural integrity
There is a small dent, about 1-2 mm deep (but no creases) in the down tube , and the alignment is perfect.
It will make a nice project for someone with the time to spend...
As bikes go, it really is right up there with the finest I've ever ridden!
More pics available on request.
