Default Intriguing Find

So, I came across this bike on Craigs list. It was fitted with full m900. I picked it up because some frame design cues caught my eye. I like the Fat-style chainstays, Ritchey drop outs, cable routing, and un-filed fillet brazed construction. Anybody ever heard of this company? Supposed to be out of the northeast back in 91-93? Anyway, thought I would share some pictures...

cool frame: the seatstay/top tube junction w/ the cable routes is really elegant and nobody does it like this anymore.

+1. The rear brake routing is super nice. I never really liked the kluge of top-tube mounted shift cables (more housing is always a bad idea IMO), but I respect that this looks like a beautifully made frame.

Nice pick up. And I agree with you, the stay bullets probably indicate Fat/Chris Chance-influence.
