Wow, quite the powder job on that. At least you can run a smaller dia seatpost to save weight? ;)
I wonder if anyone can shed any light on my lovely Atala frame? Excuse the NDS shot. Its 58cm, built in Dedacciai Zero 18 MCDV6 HT - a heat treated, lightweight tubeset, frame and fork both. This frame seems to be a tribute/styled on the late 80s Professionisti model, with a (fragile!) cromovelato laquer finish. All the text and logos are decals applied over the laquer. As well as the tubeset stickers there is also a sticker on the underside of the downtube marked "MCP 00"
If my research is correct, the tubing pins it mid 90s or later, so perhaps a 2000 production judging by the MCP sticker?
I found this build with a similar era frame; http://bicyclepointofview.blogspot.com/2013/11/atala-on-budget.html
Any model details, catalogue or general info on Atala from the 90s onward much appreciated.
Looking for any info on this frame I bought. I found a couple similar frames on google, but very little information. I’ll Include a screenshot of the sellers description so you know as much as I do.
I assume you’ve seen this
Yeah I have, Thankyou. The last bike on it looks to be exactly the same
To anyone that knows better than me - does the Carrera claim sound/look plausible? The frame weighs About 1300 (edit: About 1200 without the headset) So altec2 sounds right.
I ended up paying £117 inc postage so could be quite a bargain if So..
Found image browsing mudguards
I’d love a similar pair
Hi. I've got a mate looking to move this Saronni on. I've read that Colnago made the early ones. Is there any way to ID this frame as one or not?
Just found an old Ti bottle cage; which manufacturer’s logo is this?
Definitely a Blackburn Swerve Ti
[moved from the AQA thread ]
Any ideas what type of band-on down tube double-cable stop this is, or where I can obtain something similar new? I would prefer a slender cable-stop in the classic style rather the chunky hinged-alloy of Origin8 or Jtek current offerings.
Hi, I've got this frame badged as a ciocc, it's sc61.10 alloy, seems very well built with a rear monostay that resembles the airbnb logo. At first I thought it was a challenger because some were also built with sc61.10 but the rear stay is quite different. Anybody ever seen something like this before?
Anyone able to id the year of this Allez frame set?
looks to my eye like 2007/2008 something like that
Yes. Most certainly does. Thanks!
Any ideas on this please?
Maybe Nicolai Bikes
Can anyone identify these handlebars? The cockpit’s all plt so I guess they could be the same. Or maybe FSA?
I’m after something with a fairly flat top without running out of bar when in the drops...
Been trying to ID a frame, pictures attached. I have also got a thread going here
Looks like someone has stuck some track ends on a road frame and got rid of the braze ons before repainting?
Seat stays look like something Mike Kowal would do.
Thanks, That has been suggested as an option, but it's a bit steep for a road frame at 75deg? the other geometry is identical to my shop built Holdsworth Track/sprint. Also the same as the RT version of the Competizione. Both these look to be too old though.
I have seen your comments on other Falcons, do you know much about their involvement in Holdsworth? I have not seen track frames in this era or windows used in the lugs used by them, but with the foil decals fitted after repaint there could be a link to a Falcon Holdsworth?
75 degree parallel frames not unusual for road, although Holdsworth only rode them for one season before being dropped. Dave Moulton was a proponent of putting the rider more over the front wheel.
My Falcon San remo track frame was from a different era, not sure what Falcon did about track frames after that. If they wanted one for a Pro then Andy Thompson probably built them.
Seat stays are probably the best identifier, hence my Autostrada suggestion. It was unusual for mainstream track frames to have a deleted chainstay bridge.
Ok thanks, I did see several San Remo's but as you say too early. I may well looking to the option you mention. That missing chainstay bridge is a bit odd. I have that on my 89 Raleigh Roadace, but it was there in preceding years. I am thinking this could date it around early 90's hence the link to a Falcon Holdsworth, but by then there were using longer frame numbers with letters and usually a badge on the bottom of the seat tube. Also not seen those windows on a Falcon Holdsworth which were 531C frames mainly by then.
Widows common on RT's and it does fit the 70's cat description. could be a later build, but number rather short again. Still it does the job I want it to do, spends most of the time covered in road dirt so doesn't much matter what decals are on it!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
