How appropriate that I should find an abandoned lightweight during the TDF! Maybe some sharp list member can identify this relic! http://tinyurl.com/2olnyj Yes, it found service here as a typical "bubba bike" (pardon the phrase)-flipped bars, wheels were tacoed. I found the poor thing behind a rough apt complex (as a city employee, I get paid to cruise the alleys...) Notable features: Nervex Pro throughout very light metric tubing seatstay caps are proud of the stay tubes-but flat campy 1010 ends that seem incongruous on a French(?) frame- stamped "60" and "4188" on LH side. TA 3 pin cranks, berthet pedals, stronglight comp headset. 3t bar/stem, Huret brazeon shifters, otherwise no other brazeons. Record components make up the rest-presumably added later as the front derailer clamp slips. I removed the stuck 26.4 alloy post with judicious use of a 3-foot punch and mallet. Loaner wheels pictured. Still, it's in better shape than the PX-10 I found last year.

any ideas?
