Re:

First test with better parts and the right period :D

The brand was born in 1996 and closed in 2000.
These two frames were manufactured in 2000 for the team pilots on the Raid Cassis, they did not appreciate the bikes, they were too flexible.
In addition there was a design problem, we couldn't put the last cog, the chain rubbed the frame.
They were quickly put aside ...
I bought it from a man who bought it in 2001 after Explosiv closed. He has been riding this bike quietly so far. He is old, retired and sold it to me.
