First Zinn on the site and what a beauty. Definite BOTM nomination. Hopefully retroking #1 can supply more info.

Nice bikes - I remember having a lovely grey Zinn with full Campag MTB components in the shop for a service (when I was in the 'trade') around 1992. Quite rare now I guess - seem to recall a small 'wheel' on the frame for one of the derailleur cables to run around?

Some more close up pics would be great!

Checkout the top of the seat tube and you'll find the little wheel..

Retroking - that's one lovely bike. How I wish I had my old Campy Centaur components still. If you have any more pics email me if you like and I will host them. Dying to see them!
