Concorde Cross Bicycle...

Have any forum members heard of a late seventies or eighties something Concorde Cross bike. I am about to get one (frame and fork set only) in trade for a BOB trailer that I stumbled across last year. Anyway, I do not have the bike, yet, but hope to get it by the weekend. Just wondering if it is something unusual, or not.

There are two possibilties I can think of it is a late 70's Concorde basic Euro brand bike made in Japan converted or mislabled as a cross bike. Or a late 80's early 90's Concorde basically low mid level cross bike made in Tawain.

I picked up the Concorde Columbo frame and fork set yesterday. The bike is Columbus TriTube with forged Gipiemme drops and cantilever braze-ons for the brakes. The frame has an Italian bottom bracket housing, Gipiemme drops and Columbus TreTube Aelle tubing. Have a look and any information would be a help.


Unfortunately, the bike, at 54cm (c-c) is a touch too small for me. Figures..!

Hi! I would like to know if TreTubi is a Columbus bike or a type of tube. I am asking this because I have a Zeus bike, or at least the frame it seems so The things is that I try to make a research on this, to figure out more of it`s history. Everyone told me it is a Zeus with Columbus frame. Recently, I found out from Columbus company that Columbus collaborated with Zeus and they were sending the tubes to them. Zeus was the one manufacturing the frames. They said this after I asked them about the serial number, if it is any chance to figure out the year of fabrication of my "columbus" frame. So I am kind of confuse right now. I will appreciate any info. Thanks!

It looks like a cyclocross frame to me.
