@merziac and @nomadmax thanks for the info, since the 27.0 is tight I am pretty sure its not going to be 27.2 kinda odd that they may have changed sizes from one year to the next but what are you going to do?
Early Specialized history is fraught with rapidly changing builders, to say nothing of multiple model introductions and designers. The info takes some hunting as it is scattered here and there. In 1986 or 1987, due to the dollar/yen change, production moved out of Japan. Things likely stabilized from there as Specialized was more established in various ways, but who knows. They introduced the carbon Allez (an excellent frame!! I want my '92 back) in 1987, so that's another (big) part of their history.
