Lugged aluminum Torelli cross frame...

This showed up today, cant wait to build it, 62cm aluminum Alan. I talked to Torelli (great people) and the new owners were unaware of an Aluminum Zona type cross frame. should be a fun build.

That looks like a lot of fun. Do you have any plans for the build yet?

another re-badged ALAN frame...add Torelli to the list of dozens of marques who re-badge ALAN frames. This one looks to have some (maybe) unique flared chainstays.

I'm have some 700c x 35 tires for it and wheels, tall Nitto technomic quill stem with mustache or cross bars, I have a Shimano "platinum" triple crankset with a 24t small gear for these New Mexico hills! I'll have to dig through the brake parts to see what I have, not sure for shifters yet, depends on the bars. I'll be stealing parts off of this, it a bit too small for me but a shorter fellow wants the frame!

Ready for the balloon fiesta!

Stole a lot of parts from the other bike but kept the urban assault theme, ditched the 70mm octalink front derailleur for a 70mm tapered and tossed the Shimano triple low 24 on, I like the top load cables only and the roller coaster cable cross over for the front derailleur, the seat tube is a weird size so I had to use a little tape to get the clamp on 31.8 to fit. Thumbie shifters with a "normally low" Shimano rear derailleur, so pushing the thumbs forward on both sides is going to a higher gear, easy to remember but takes some getting used to. Thanks for looking!
