Yes, I typed in Pro where I meant Team. Then I realized my goof and fixed it a couple minutes later.

I'm not the expert, but the only ones designated 'Pro' that I've seen are the ones like rodteague and I have, early 90's aluminum main tubed bikes. There were an awful to of variations under the Technium brand, and an awful to of labels.

If you haven't figured it out yet, the guide for sussing out the Technium serial numbers is now on the very first post on this thread. Serial number will be on the bottom bracket.

I've had two Techniums comes through my garage. The first was an '86 (?) 460 (?) that I picked up for just $25. Maybe my best bike deal:

Lovely, flexy ride. It "planes" maybe the best of any bike I've had. The three main tubes were aluminum, everything else was steel.

I tried a 650B conversion on it:

but the brakes were dangerously bad in the wet. Great riding bike, but I sold it to a friend for some reason.

Later I picked up an Peak mtb frame off ebay. I had hoped this would give me the lively ride of the road bike but with room for fatter tires, but the ride of the Peak is quite ordinary. Just OK. I still have it. I kept the wrong Technium!

This guys has an aluminum front (including the head tube and lugs) with a steel rear.
