Ross Countach Frame Material
I've had a Ross Countach since new in 1986. It's been a good bike. Stock it weighs in at about 31 lbs. Mine came with alloy wheels, steering stem, and crank arms. The crank arms were made by Tracer which as I recall I found to be a Sugino low end brand. I recently converted it to single speed and have been using it as a commuter for a month or so. I got the weight down to about 25 pounds by replacing the bottom bracket, cranks, bars, seat, pedals, and the chainring and freewheel. I ride about 11 miles round trip which includes 500' descent on the way to work and then the ascent on the way home. Its geared at 42/20.
I just did a material identification test on the frame. It came up as straight carbon steel; no chrome, no nickel.
