    hey roger,

    if your using a pc hit control - or control + to zoom in and out mac is apple - & apple +. you can also use the view tab on your web navigator to zoom. there are also download links at the bottom and you can view the pics with whatever photo software you might have on your pc & zoom in and out.

    Bigger is better as far as images go.

    It's a rigid framed mountain bike. No idea who made it, or exactly when - though I'd guess 90's.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Look i have a 20 inch monitor and can only 1/4 of you images. If you want help post things so people don't have to do a song and a dance to see them. For what its worth Breezer comes from Joe Breeze on of the founders of mountain biking and were once sold through QBP among other places. This is a forum to to help you not to make people jump through hoops. Roger

    That's a strange one. A lot of people used breezer dropouts for a while, so that's not all that much help. Geometry-wise, it looks like a kona, but I don't recall them having so much head tube on the smaller frames. The top-tube cable routing makes me want to say it's early to mid-nineties, but that's about all I've got right now.

    I dig the way the dropouts are joined to the stays, it's nice and clean-looking. Do you have a shot of how the seat stays meet the seat tube?

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    new pics

    NEW pics you requested are up. If your still there roger I lowered the res of all of the pics. Sorry, i didn't realize how easy it was for me to down res them with google sites. anyone who wants higher res pics can view the links at the bottom of the page.

    here's the link again...

    http://sites.google.com/site/namethatbike/

    background info:

    bought this bike for next to nothing from a very generous friend who was a professional trials rider. I lost touch with him long ago. He was really good. Could it be a custom frame? if so, who could have made it.

    brought it into a local bike shop & everyone was drooling over it. well, either that or they were mocking me.

    thanks for all and any help.

    It's an interesting bike.
    The rear dropouts are fillet-brazed to the stays, but the main tubes are just TIGed. Very small frame size with a tall headtube. Reminds me of an early Brodie or Rocky Mountain, but I know it's not one of them. Top tube looks like it was made from a downtube. That serial number is a puzzler too. (TF-00--95?)It's hard to tell what colour it was - purple/blue? I see green, white, and orange in the scratches too.
    I've been able to take a layer of spraypaint off without damaging the underlying decals and paint too badly with Goof-Off. Spray some on a rag and give the frame a wipe. Starting with the front of the headtube might reveal something.

    Breezer was a brand of bike that Joe Breeze put out. I would guess 1995 is about the year. That is an above average hard tail bike with an initial cost of over $1000. It is for either a women or a very short man. Should be a very nice riding bike. Roger

    didn't know if you guys could tell, but the frame is steel not aluminum. It rides really well and is a super lite ride.
