This compact French road frameset carries no brand or obvious signs of any specific builder, but it was obviously built with great care using Colmbus Aelle tubing and good quality lugs. Probably dating from the mid 90s, the frame has semi-horizontal dropouts and shot-in seatstays giving it a sleek, racy look. The black and green fade paint work contrasts nicely with the chrome fork and chromed rear end and is in fantastic sparkling condition.

The frame's been carefully checked by one of our mechanics to confirm the alignment's correct and there's no damage to the threads. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the frame before you buy.
