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
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!
