You mean this one?

I really like the gusset.

And and it sure does have a monostay

You may recognise it KGB. Matt P. From St George used it regularly at Hurstville and Tempe in the early 2000s.

More on it later.

And Miche has switched to 144. Its the Japanese standard that has become the pseudo world standard

Just rub it in a little bit anyway judging by your other 10,000 frames this one looks to big for you . If those cranks are bigger than 165 and your moving them on keep me in mind ,good luck to you the early bird gets the worm

Lol, it is a 57cm TT. Borderline for me, but then again, I'm scabbing the parts for my track bikes, then the frame will be off to a friend in Melbourne.

I don't remember this one QV. Early 2000s I want on the bike much though, regrettably.
I like the gusset too but wow, THAT is a tall head tube!

It's called Freuler design/geometry. The TT is a couple centimeters below top HT and ST. HT is 16cm, so about normal for a 57cm frame. Bigger Colnagos had a similar design as Urs Freuler wanted that on the frames he rode.

Sweet wheels Foo. Did you buy them second hand or are they a custom build.

Second hand mate and only ridden on twice. :mrgreen:

Got them from a bloke in Tassie that made them up last year (a wheel builder with 40yrs experience) but he decided they were to good for his poor talent. :shock:

Glad you are liking the wheels Foo. Great to see a picture of them in the bike. Funny though I ride a Fuji track bike as well.

How do you find those bars, GW? I hated the mongrel things and put my 35yr old Track bars back on. :wink:

Yes, do need some new bars. These were the ones that came with the bike. For the track can find a nice position. Might be OK on a road bike.

I've been sick of looking and feeling like a great dane shagging a tennis ball! I've stepped up in sizing from a 58 with a 130mm stem to the Felt TK3 61cm and have kept the 130mm stem and 3T bars. First ride yesterday arvo, felt (no pun intended) much better.
Now if i can find a decent set of legs!

Cheers
