Alan R30 CarbonioMavicmaniac12/06/2017 03:50 PM
R/30 model needs a 27,2 mm seatpost. Teka team became to use in 1989 R/30 in carbon or in alloy. Vertical tube also needs braze on front derailleur.
Oria ML 25Orlando8411/27/2017 12:35 PM
According to Oria documentation, this tubing was plain gauge, drawn 0.7-0.8mm thick.
Cinelli Bottom Bracket Shell (French Threads)longrider11/09/2017 03:56 PM
Can we assume that, like most quality components, the Cinelli BB might have been emulated by other component manufacturers? I have a mystery Mercier frame c1980 with a BB very similar to the first image shown, e.g.the semi-open cable guides and single plain base hole. There are no other marks, though, apart from a stamped "3" which also appears on the steerer tube. It's a mystery I'd love to solve.
Mercier Super Vitus 971 (Late 1970's - Early 1980's)longrider10/12/2017 01:59 PM
Merciers are a real mystery once the head badge is lost, and with it the serial number. This frame is as close as I've found so far to one I have, but if I've learnt anything in my quest then it's that Merciers vary enormously in their detailing.
Medici Pro Strada (Late 1970's)qcpmsame09/19/2017 08:03 AM
This frame has been identified by others as a 1980 model, this best fits the make up of things. The chain rings are now Super Record, brake calipers are Nuovo Record, brake levers remain Victory/Triomphe model, and the derailleurs were swapped for post CPSC dated items more correct for the year model of the frame.
Cinelli Track Fork Crownbulgie07/01/2017 08:38 PM
Not sure if it is Cinelli brand (I don't think it is) -- it was sold by Columbus as Columbus brand. It is not a track crown, as shown by the brake hole and the oval blades. It was not investment cast, it is machined in three pieces, a true two-plate crown. It only fits Columbus oversized tandem blades.
Takahashi Bottom Bracket Shellbulgie07/01/2017 08:31 PM
Very high quality, cast in Japan by Hitachi -- you can see the Hitachi symbol, that circular cast-in hallmark seen near the left edge of the photo of the bottom. This shell was also available without the long points on the inner parts of the chainstay sockets, just a traditional rounded spoon shape, intended for use with a separate chainstay bridge. Traditional tube sizes only: 1-1/8" ST & DT, 7/8" round chainstays. Made in English or Italian thread, 68 or 70 mm wide respectively.
Takahashi Fully slopingbulgie07/01/2017 08:19 PM
The model designation was "Mer". Some of the Taiwanese knockoffs, that were near-exact copies, even called their copy Mer.  The Takahashi was a better quality casting, cast in Japan (by Hitachi I believe).  Great strength and ductility, free of voids, with a superior surface finish.  Mer was available with a shelf at the bottom of the steerer bore, or bored straight through.  1" steerer only.   The pictured crown is the second-generation. The first had a round "land" where the brake mounts.
Guerciotti Sprint (by ALAN)JAKE03/03/2017 01:54 PM
I have 2 bikes very, very similar to this. The Guerciotti has no "sprint" designation, only marking is on the seat tube near the top right side: "tourist" stamped into frame, I think that there was "486" also stamped in the same area. The frame itself looks identical and is of '85-'86 vintage with either Campy victory or triomphe gruppo (trying to use this forum to identify). I have another frame that is identical to the Guerciotti; a Tommaso (made by the same manufacturer as everything is the same, stamped on BB made in Italy with same frame size stamped also). I rode the Guerciotti once since it was bought as an investment, it has absolutely no wear ( maybe 50 miles on this frame, only 1 mile by myself)and I still have the original tires (although not functional, still no signs of wear). Purchased the Tommaso since I could ride it and essentially be riding the "G". Both very good bikes; lots of mileage on the Tommaso, but all bonded joints still seem fine. I will provide pics in the near future as I have no camera. Thanks to all!
Colnago Super (1982)JAKE03/03/2017 01:30 PM
My first "really great bike". Although the frame is about 4 cm's too big I love riding this bike. I cannot determine the year, and from the examples provided it doesn't match any specifically. Very similar to this '82 model, but my fork crown lug seems somewhat different, but pantographs are the same. Decals are very close, but down tube decal has no striping. The cable routing for the derailleurs are guides brazed on the top of the BB, '76 model showed no detail of this so I can't compare the frame to it. Right now I can only assume that it's somewhere between '77 and '81 (any ideas?). Has a Record/Nuovo Record gruppo with the BB assy a sealed bearing Edco Competition (I think Swiss made), and replaced with Campy Athena after failure (note: I found replacement bearings for the Edco so I've got a spare if someone's looking for one). I don't know if that was the original BB for the bike as I purchased it in '86 and have just put it up for complete rebuild after 30 years of riding. Once again I'm technology disadvantaged and I cannot at this time provide pics. I will in a later posting. Thanks to all!
