    1993(ish) Dave Lloyd Bees Knees

    That is a rare one. I have Dave Lloyd's original register of frames and without trawling through it year by year I couldn't give you an exact number but I'd be surprised if he ever made more than a handful of Beez Neez. They were a nice idea, a very lightweight frame, but they never really...

    Dave Lloyd Frame Register

    Re: If that number is LL951108, which is what it looks like to me, then it is a Concept 90, but it is made from Deda Zero not 753. If the frame number is 951138, then that's another C90 in 653. In the 9511xx frame number series there are very few 753 C90's, maybe one or two, but with frame...

    Re: Excellent. Summer is coming, so lots of opportunities to ride in the coming months. BTW, I hadn't picked up before how close the paint scheme on your bike is to my Concept 90. No wonder I liked it so much. :mrgreen:

    Re: midlife It looks great and the straight forks really suit it, although they probably make the steering a bit more... lively. Every DL bike I have ridden, road or mtb has the faster, Faster, FASTER.... feel about it, it's a characteristic I really like.... until the end of a ride when I'm...

    Re: Tim, that is a REALLY rare bike as it is made for the track, rather than the road. The register lists LL961247 as a Track originally ordered by Wheels 2 You and made of Deda Zero. As the number implies, it was made in 1996. That's a very cool machine, thanks for sharing it.

    Re: 7784 is not a Dave Lloyd number... what that means is that Dave did not build the frame himself, but that he had it made. By the looks / style of the frame it is a late 1970's possibly early 1980's design, but it looks absolutely gorgeous, so the best thing to do is ride it and enjoy it.

    Re: I was supposed to be on Mull for the first week in June. It has been postponed for a year, my accommodation is still booked as is my place in the sportive, but whether we will all be free to travel again by then remains to be seen. As I'm in group 7.... I may have had the vaccine by...

    Re: Amazing history. It is still is a thing of beauty. I didn't ride mine at all this summer, much to my shame, I was really concentrating on fitness leading up to a cycling trip to Scotland..... which ended up being postponed until next year... so I will have to do all that work all over...

    Re: WOW! Is that the bike Dave Lloyd built for himself? If not it is an identical spec. other than maybe the chain wheels which were silver on the bike review I saw. Mine has exactly the same colour scheme and there was also a Concept 90 painted the same. I got mine as a frame only, so it...

    Re: Hi David, I would love to see pichurs of another Quantum 650, especially one still in the hands of the original owner. There is currently one for sale on eBay, the seller has listed it as a Concept 90 but the 650 wheels give it away.

    Re: Just keep buying the frames, sooner or later you will get what you are after.... plus a whole fleet of 800TRI's :mrgreen:

    Re: Always happy to help if I can. LL93784 is an 800 TRI originally made for Neil Magean and is indeed made of yummy Reynolds 753.

    Re: Re: I have, but thanks for the heads up. It was listed previously and disappeared quickly, I took it that I am not the only DL nerdy and someone had snapped it up quick, but possibly not. It's not a thing I wish to own, but is interesting never the less.

    Re: OK. Catalogue scans sent. Best remove that e-mail address, if the Chinese bots get it you will get swamped. I had my address on a web site as I was secretary of a regional organisation, the bots got it and I was getting 10,000 nonsensical Chinese e-mails a day until the web site...

    Re: It's a custom frame and Dave was big into TT bikes, plus there are many examples of very individualised frames that he built, so it may be in the register as an 800TRI but there is no knowing what the original specification was. There are only a couple of catalogues that I have seen, I am...

    Re: Re: 1995 is indeed the year of construction. LL951125 is a Road frame made for Steven Powell and constructed from Reynolds 653, that should be a really nice riding bike. I must confess that I have powder coated my winter bike (a Rourke). It is a dreadful thing to do to a hand made frame...

    Yes the 800TRI is the same design as the Concept 90 but designed for 650C wheels which Dave thought were faster. The proportions of the TRI are slightly different to the C90, but made of 653 yours should be a really nice ride. Dave later made a C90 type frame of road racing proportions for...

    Re: LL94866 is an 800TRI, it was originally made for WHEELS and is constructed from Reynolds 653. The TRI was designed to run on 26" wheels (650C) so it is worth checking what will fit. Another tell tale is that it wouldn't have had bottle bosses fitted to the down tube and seat tube when new...
