Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Can anyone identify this frame?

This isn't my photo, and it was apparently taken with a potato, but the two visible logos are pretty distinct. The original poster never responded when asked what frameset it is. Given that it is, what looks like, fillet brazed steel, with really unique track ends it should be easy to identify, but my searches have been fruitless.

Frame looks a little small for Bumblebee. Didn't get a proper bike fit.

That looks like a lynsky headbadge on there, which would make sense as it appears to be a custom Ti frame.

Robots never listen to the LBS, they're too busy transforming into jets and fighting evil robots.

If you zoooom way in you can see brass filler around the joints, especially where the top tube joins the seat tube. I think it's brazed steel with no paint. Still, what few pixels there are of the headbadge DO resemble the Lynskey badge, so... maybe?

Hmmm I did a reverse image search and it appears that the picture came from the land of the snoo. Have you tried sending the original uploader of the picture a private message about it?

I searched for the logo on the bottle and seatmast yesterday but didn't find anything.

Evocative of Serotta but that isn't it.
