Is it really as early as 93? It looks later - isn't that a minimal down tube gusset?

Yellow tyres is far too much yellow in my humble opinion. I always think respect the frame is a good principle to follow, don't let other things out-face the frame. It's an excellent frame.

even the gripshifts are a bit much, some Mavic Crossrides with the yellow hubs would look good though I reckon.

I used to have a Coyote with Easton Ultralite tubing that looked very similar to this but was green. Very light and a nimble climber but rather unforgiving on descents (the Marzocchi Z3 Lights up-front helped quite a bit though). Unfortunately it got nicked whilst I was living in London. Bah.

Do you (or does anyone else) know what model it is? I've never seen anything that looked like mine up until now so always presumed that I was the owner of some sort of prototype.

Here is a Christmas Eve build update:

I like MTB's and drops so I thought I'd pay a wee homage, just a wee nod mind, dont take it as some sort of imitation to the you-know-what below...

Image


Jagwire bar-end shifter mounts are very nice and a lot lighter than Shimano's. A set of near mint 600 d/t levers take care of the shifting with some Deore LX for the rest.

Some NOS Dia Compe 986 went into the mix along with some cycle jumble Dia-Compe aero levers.

A dead Peugeot roadbike donated the Phillipe bars along with the usual ebay trawl for stem, bargain alu aheadset and bar tape.

Seatpost is too layback (and modern!) so it will disappear to be replaced by, er, another seatpost. Might stick my one and only Brooks on there instead of the 50p car-boot Ritchey.
