    Yeah... a Pinnacle Lithium whith a wheelbase of a lorry and gears.
    What can i say, i do my best but i can't save every stupid little thing.

    I'll try again when some junkie find a reason to steal this eLithium rolling piece of aluminium.

    You don't.
    That's why i ask here. Obviously my cousin lacks of the sense of degrees.

    I was told that there is a tough uphill near university but i'm not familiar with Cambridge.
    As it seems my cousin is a disgrace in our family... i will give him a chance to explain himself
    and i'll come back.

    thanx!

    hi everyone!
    my cousin works in the university and needs a ss for commuting.
    I need someone that knows the (only? ) uphill that scaring him, to propose
    a disk - cog ratio.
    He is close to 6ft and 172pounds.
    If someone has also a bike to sell (54-55), feel free to pm me.

    thanx!

    It has plain sort lugs like those that we used to see on 80s SLs.
    BB shell is untouched as concern the degrees that can handle
    without any fillet brazing.
    I think that the fork and rear dropouts are the most characteristic
    elements that can lead us to a conclusion.
    Purchased NOS (without decals) from a good old shop in Athens at 2006.
    They was dealing selected frames mostly from Italy, France, Spain and UK.

    My best guess is Rychtarski and my second Dosi but i couldn't find even one
    like this...

    It's been years now that i can't find any info about this frameset.
    Now that i almost kidnaped it to rebuilt it, i need all the help i can get.

    The only information that i 'm sure about is that this fork was the original
    and was painted light yellow with light green gradients.
    Its' BB shell is 70mm and been built for 650c front wheel...




    thanks!
    ps: seatpost 27mm

    It took me a couple of hours to catch up the last six months in this thread
    and i'm happy that i found the most of you in great shape.

    The status stem is a nice part, not so stiff as the record 83 but nice.
    The cover bolt is a fault that no one expects from 3ttt and splits the cover
    when you try to tighten it a little more than it needs.
    I try to save the covers using black silicone instead of the bolt,
    something that works but still a pain when you try to make adjustments...

    Did they run out of paint on that?
    (headtube,dropouts)

    its pearl white inside the fork and stays too, i think it was the nicest
    finish that they can achieve without the risk of a major fault that could
    speed down the painting...

    What's with the seatpost diameter?

    its max OR (off road not oversize) and if i 'm not mistaken should fit a 30.4mm seat post or something close.

    you can search"white bar tape" on ebay, you will find a lot of
    reproductions of the leather one that was available in 80s.
