A photo would help us determine. Are you sure of the "T" in the serial number because I believe that to mean Titanium? 042 42nd T Titanium 4 1994, ML size medium/large. If it is a "Y" in the serial number in lieu of a "T" then it would be a Yo Eddy.

Welcome Neil!
If you can, post a close up shot of the bottom bracket area. I can verify if it is a Somerville TI frame by looking at the way the BB welds are made
Best of luck
Scott

You bought a titanium frame and didn't know about it?

Welcome to a new UK fat owner... But yeah, be really interested to hear how you stumbled upon the bike and didn't know what it was. Did where you bought it have any more unknown bikes?

Again, welcome. We'd love to see some more pics.
