Thanks for the compliment I am a Calligrapher so have some experience with a brush. I liked the look of three and when they got a bit rusty I picked up a set on e-bay and now have 3 on the bike and it looks better to my eyes

Condor Superbe

@callig It must be time for a mileage update .

Actually, the reason I'm here is that @jjhabbs has a new Condor and it looks very much like yours. He has a 3 digit s/n on the NDS dropout and is trying to narrow down the year of the frame and I'm wondering if you can help him out in comparing s/n's?

Cheers.

Brad

Just behind the lug, on the bottom of the tube. A typical place for a kink following a front end prang.

I thought maybe a clamp-on cable stop had been over-tightened in a previous build. Or it could be just a trick of the light.
