Some one on this forum said it a while ago, frames are cheap. So one crazy e-bay auction later my new project is on its way. Not the steel steed I had been building myself up to wanting, no, but still a lovingly hand-crafted frame of a small builder. Mind you, a full search on this forum didn't yield more than an occasional mention of his name ....

So here's a teaser for you, what is it?
Image
smooth welds, eh? Nice metal flake paint too ...

Image
rear facing dropouts , yes! But NOT a Klein ....

Image
More smooth welding, but is this picture is also the give away?

anyone?

Hmmm, low seat stays, what could it be...?

Smooth welds or fillet brazed very prettily?

58 views and 2 replies, hmmmm. I thought it would not be easy, but had expected some more wild guesses. Low stays was a good observation, so how about another clue regarding stays?

This should narrow down the options .....

No points for make just yet, No Klein or Yeti, but it is a suspended rear.
Come on then, here's another one:

Yet more smooth welds plus some CNC detailing. And O-rings to keep the muck out and a grease nipple to supply grease to the pivot axle...

looks as though its for v's or discs (or at least hydraulic/cable). So im guessing 1997 ish onwards. Rear pivot looks nice with the grease nipple, you mention its a small manufacturer, but im stuck on small manufacturers that made FS frames...
