I don't see how it can be a Caldera? I also can't see any brake cable stops?

The caldera stickers were added after, I bought it off eBay a while ago as a complete bike, it's a race light frame, slightly lighter than my race light lava dome frame.

In the picture it looked like it was white with a green tinge like it was white sprayed over green.

Nope, it's baby blue, just the lighting I guess. There's no evidence of the previous paint and the respray was professionally done post sand blast.

At the end of the day I'm not claiming its an amazing retro piece, but its a decent enough frame for £29.

Well the auction claimed it was caldera...
Frame weight is hahana/fire mountain territory I think, especially for the 'race light' mid 90's

Serial would have given you the year

Just hope nobody bids on it thinking it's a Caldera

Fair cop. Although my 98 Caldera non race light frame is heavier, so...

Also - what's the weight difference between a Racelight caldera and a Racelight fire mountain? Does it even matter at this stage which frame it is? They are all pretty similar and weights and materials fluctuated year to year.
