Ti Sampson

I picked up this frame but I dont know too much about it. Its 54x54 which is small for me but im trying to make it work because I dont know the next time Ill see a Ti frame I can afford.

Previous owner didnt know the age of the frame but said the fork was from 2005. He said the Ti was russian sourced and was built by a good builder whos name I dont recall. Thats really all I got. Any help would be much apprecaited if I decide it is in the end too small.


Thanks for the help!










F 03237



Started building it up with some Shimano 600 Tri color

Here's a very similar model: https://www.bikerecyclery.com/sampson...oad-bike-frame

Seller uses lots of hyperbole and doesn't provide much helpful info. More speculation than facts. Not buying the "early and rare" assessment.

More likely a pricepoint model Based on the dropouts, FD mount, and weld quality. Rather utilitarian when compared to other Sampsons I've seen.
