Special Thanks to Danaroby and Mr. Wheelnut for the main components of this build...

Frame ist approx 1997 Columbus Spirit fillet brazed by "Speed", an Italian company similar to Scapin in the 90ies. Today they only sell carbon frames... Frame weight however is almost exactly 1700g.

Fork as you may know is a 1998 that might already belong to a 1997 build... I would have used an older fork, but this was the perfect match to this frame that I could get.

Components et the moment are some leftover mix. I like the Sram X0 although it feels and looks a bit cheapish. The V-bakes will be replaced soon by some better parts. But I do not want to change the colour concept with ot of silver parts on that frame. I will try some tune barends (also silver) sometimes though...

It's partly British and partly Italian, so what do you expect?

Do you think, this bike is to young for this section of retrobike?
