Hi,

Never find any thread about this bike before, and just have a chance to made one.
:D
The frame is aluminum EASTON 7000 series tubing, 19" size, 700cx35 tyre.
Cant wait the DX groupset to complete, so i use the XT from my another bike.
Still searching for the Alpinestar 700c fork.

I've never really been taken with Alpinestars frames until I first saw one of these. I find it really aesthetically satisfying, especially built up like in the third picture. If there was a steel version I'd have yet another bike on my wanted list.

I found this on some swiss classifieds site (expired ad)

Looks like it could be steel?
