Good evening everyone. A new member from Washington DC who is most grateful for the information that I have garnered and for the two fantastic bikes I have purchased off the forum.
I found this interesting bike for sale but its manufacturer is unattributed. The seller has said "we refer to the fact that the shape of the fork and rear stay look like Columbus tubes. That's why we call it Columbus, but we actually have no idea who the craftsman who produced it is." It is a time trial bike.
Would those with expertise in Columbus Tubing provide some feedback? Or has anyone seen something akin to this before? Any thoughts on who might have used this style of crimping? Looks a bit like a Colango Arabesque but the crimps seem to end earlier.
I am grateful for any time and effort that you all put into reading the post and responding.
