Last frame of 2010
2010 ended with a tig steel road frame with a couple of nods to the past: # 1, I used some small collars on the head tube that resembled the style on a lot of bikes in the early '90's. # 2, there's a Tange wishbone seatstay casting , much like mid to late '80's road bikes. I have about 70 of these castings left over from when Bontrager in Santa Cruz got shut down. I think I have only used about three of these in the last 12 years.
The tubeset is a mixture of Columbus Nivacrom stays and True Temper S-3 main tubes. The whole thing weighs in at 3 bl. 11 oz. pretty light for a frame this size, the equivalent of a 57 cm.
