Some of you will have seen this outed in the ebay section, and then all of a sudden the listing ended.....

Hands up, 'twas me.

Some of you may have seen my other thread with the full Campag Frontiera and will be familar with the great research from the fellas here that worked out its history.

Given the interest on that bike, when this one was outed, i couldn't resist, especially given the fabulous condition.

Anyway enough blather, some pictures....

To start one by my door and the pics from the ebay listing

also that GT saddle, its nice but its not right on this bike. I have a white repro turbo kicking about. Also the seatpost is a 26.8 using a coke can shim. I have a campy 27 that will do the job until a nice XT in the right size turns up.

So those minor tweaks, and sex on wheels...

the kit on this is mint, the rims have no rub whatsoever, all the XT kit is fresh as a daisy. Nice.

As far as I know Frontiera were the brand of Border cycles in Carlise. They got the frames made by local torch men. My other one is believed to be a Paul Donahue, so the question is, who made this one?

Heres some pictures to help the investigation
