I got this via a link by big.eck to an ad on gumtree[Edinburgh]Enid promptly offered to uplift it for me and it was duly handed over this afternoon
The guy i got it off said that he bought it from the interbike expo show when it was in Poland and he got it off the Campagnolo stand.
Now i dont think Campagnolo made it themselves rather it was used to show off their mtb groupo[what year i dont know]I'll text the seller later and find out what show and what date
Campy is Italian so could it be from an Italian MTB maker?
The way the dropouts are welded looks familiar
but im not sure,i was thinking litespeed but why would they pick a US company over a local European one
As you can see from the pics it is disc only,has S-bend seatstays although they dont look as pronounced as most
quite sexy and slim
The bottom bracket has no number stamped on it, but it has 0382 stamped on the drive side dropout and on the other i can just make out 42 with OTK underneath,inside a circle
no idea what this is
[Googling though interesting, didnt help
The frame mounts are all welded in and look to be of good quality,the cable mounts are the usual slotted on the top but the hose routing are just little tubes,so you'd have to dismantle the hose to fit the brakes.I suspect the top hose mounts have been cut and widened to accept the hose easier but the seat stay mount is still as a tube,so at least that one is original
I spent all last night and most of today trying to search for anything related to interbike expo and campagnolo but i cannot find a thing and really need the collective knowledge of the forum to get this one identified
Seat tube C-C is 20 1/2" C-T 21 3/4"
Top tube C-C is 23 1/2"[23 3/4"
Chainstay C-C is 16 3/4"[approx]
Seat stay C-C is 21" [approx]
Head tube length is 5 1/2"[140mm]
Rear spacing -135mm
Disc mount 51mm Appears to be for a 150mm or slightly less rotor
Probable its for an 80-100 fork[but ive no idea about the geometry so could be anything
Enough chit chat ? OK
questions might help others remember
