:D I know I like it, but I'm still surprised that so many others do as well. I'm feeling very smug atm lolz.

More like farmed Barra. Very gritty.

Mate, that looks fantastic. I love IF frames. I've wanted one since I first drooled over a Yo Eddy team Fat Chance MTB back in the early 90's.


I am with Scotty.
Thought very hard about getting an IF when my Moots was destroyed.
My nit pick would be the Thomson stuff.
I love it on MTB's but it just looks "industrial" on road bikes IMO.

The above crankset was removed from Van Helsing below because the last bit finally arrived to install the Sugino OX601XD 46/30 super-compact crankset (well, it is my audax bike and I reckon gradients get steeper by 2-3% for every 100km you ride :)):

There was a bottle cage bolt in the exact place the band on the old front derailleur needed to be so I had to get one of these to work around that:

... and a new front derailleur, so in a fit of experimentation I went with a Shimano CX-70 as it is designed to work with CX cranksets, i.e. smaller rings. Campmano! So far so go. Have needed to do a bit more tuning.

Nice Sumgy. Not a Colnago but Italian made.

What year and size is it?

It looks like a late 80's early 90's in a 59/60cm to me?

No idea on the year but am thinking about the same as you.
The guy advertised it as 58cm square (C-C).
Currently I am not even sure what model it is.
He advertised it as being a Concorde Ventana, but my research shows that is a lower end Cromor tubed model.
I have had all sorts of suggestions from elsewhere including Columbo, Mistral, Prelude and Squadra.
It is definitely one of the higher end models given the PRX tubing.

Given the internal cable routing, it has to be a Squadra (pre-PDM days) or the next model down. Nice purchase mate. More desirable to me than most of the Italian branded stuff.

Problem is Womble, that Concorde had a heap of models made of a heap of different tubing and in a heap of different paint jobs.
I am leaning to Squadra or Prelude.
The other suggested models were in different tubing.

Rather than derail this thread, I would be keen to discuss this frame more over in my thread in Retro.

Finally swapped the running gear from my cracked Malvern Star onto the new frame, a 2011 Apollo Performance. Jolly good ride for aluminium, especially on downhills.

Love the frame, what is it? Do those bolts at the bottom of the seat stay allow it to be separated to fit a belt-drive?

They look like a mudguard and rack tabs to me.

Dayum, brushed Ti is soooo beautiful.
Biff, my guess is rack/guard mounts going by the similar near the seat cluster.
