Haro. Check the catalogues and scans section - someone recently posted a catalogue that probably lists this.

Im pretty sure this one is worse than that. An early Apollo, the Halfords "Haro" Knockoff.

Worse than a Haro....the frame is pebble-dashed like a council house garage!

It's a prototype Haro TimeTrials bikes, full Prestige tubing, you can tell from the similar canti hanger to the Orange Prestige, similar 1992 age as well. Ignore the components they're not original but how the frames were sold on when they didn't work as expected. There thinking was raise the seat area, but keep the front lower for aerodynamics*. they later pebble dashed them grey to make people think they may be GT bikes.

* while also experimenting in 635c wheel diameter (26" with road tyres to you and me)

Are you serious? And if so point me to something similar? I liked the pebbledash but everybody else says BSO :?
