thanks joe, but there's a 1992 Nevil Devil on First Flight, and it bears very little resemblence to this frame, will post a side-on pic tomorrow though...............

It certainly has some similarities, the gear cable routing is different though and there is no sleeve at the toptube/seattube junction on my frame, might be worth an e-mail to Salsa though...........

A picture of the head tube might give it away to someone, full ring enforced, thickness of rings etc ?

Headtube has no interal or external machining or reenforcement rings, there isn't much spare steel on this bike! have e-mailed Salsa, will check out some Jamis frames too (a Jamis Dragon would be a super sweet find!)
