    Anybody seen one of these? Twin small diameter horizontal top tube . . .

    I saw this bike a while ago. I took some pictures because I'd never seen anything like it. The decal on the side says "Condor". Can anyone point me to some more information on this bike?

    Thanks,

    Spalding

    Condor is a Swiss manufacturer that made quite a number of bikes up to around the early 2000s.

    The twin toptube is a concept that has been tried by some British frame makers, and more recently by the Trek Earl and the Giant Via.

    There was a thread about twin top tube designs awhile back in framebuilding.
