Not sure how to link an ebay ad , so forgive me . Look up Albuch Kotter mtb frame . If I was just a bit taller I might be tempted by this . Anyone out there heard of the make ?

An identical one to this was for sale from a seller in Germany awhile back and I did some research into it when considering buying it. I can't remember everything I came up with, but I seem to recall they were made with plain gauge Oria Special tubing, which is decent, but not that light and the frames are relatively heavy. Nice lugged design though, I especially like the forks.

I think the one that sold before was about €150 including postage. Could even be the same one, as the photos look identical as far as I remember.

Yes KOF it looks like an oria sticker on the downtube . Seem to remember this material being good for a a winter training bike but little more . More likely to grow a third testicle than see another one on the trails . IMO :lol:
