Cinelli GOIDESIGNMilesDavis01/18/2017 05:39 PM
This is actually a Goi Contini - no affiliation with Cinelli at all

This is actually a Milremo dropout

In 1996 and 1997 the frame was sold with classic tubes. In 1998 this was changed to Trapezium tubes, where the region of the bottom bracket has wider tubing for more stiffness. In 1999 the front fork was switched from one with a threaded headset to an Ahead stiletto fork. 2002 was probably the last year of production. Chroming of front (and maybe rear) fork was an option.

Another thing that I can tell anyone with an interest in this frame is that on some models of the KG86, the rear dropouts have "LOOK" stamped upon them & on others - mine included - TVT is stamped upon the rear dropout! But ALL KG86 frames require the 25mm (or 25.4mm) diameter seatpost that was ubiquitous upon TVT, LOOK, Vitus & ALAN frames of the era.

Rather than the "Bernard Hinault" decal shown upon the drive-side of the downtube of the KG86 frame shown above, a number of them instead feature a 'spiel' upon the decal that reads - "This exclusive frame and forks has been produced and designed in collaboration with the << La Vie Claire >> pro cycling team of the Bernard Tapie Sport group and created by TVT, the technological leader of the carbon Kevlar® compound. This unique dampening unbreakable tubing is made of a Kevlar® carbon fibre. Enjoy the ride!" My KG86 (purchased NOS) features this "spiel" decal upon the drive-side & the "Bernard Hinault" decal upon the N/D/S, which I have seen upon many other NOS frames. And I have also seen a couple of KG86 frames with the same 'spiel' written in French, which I quite like! BTW, did anyone else notice the fact that they claimed in their 'spiel' that these tubes were "unbreakable"?!

All the Technium maintubes (on the alloy Techniums) were 6061-T8. Brinell hardness: 6061-T6=95 6061-T8=120

This badge appeared in the 1910's and desappeared before 1930. A another version with bigger T continued in the beginning of the 30's
Peugeot Headbadgealain290810/07/2016 02:00 AM
This is not a 1910 badge. This logo appeared in 1898 and desappeared before 1910

This headbadge appeared in 1926

Added an extra pic showing a variant of the rear dropout, as well as one showing the front dropout. My rear example would look to be the first generation version of the model, seeing as the Suntour logo is the company's older version, with the 'split' T showing in it, compared to the logo showing on the rear dropout already pictured here. Strangely though, the front dropout doesn't show the older logo- this despite the fact that both dropouts came off the same bike:)
