Thx. It is a size 58 frame. I do not have the frame built up yet and I doubt whether it will happen anywhere soon. Currently busy with finishing a RIH (531 butted). For the SCi build I do have following specs in mind: Sachs New Success and Syncros Altura stem and post. A distributer in Europe used to spec, show and advertise the Kestrels with Syncros parts. Looks classy. Sachs New Success is period correct and distinctive, but what I am not entirely happy with is that it is a bit heavy kit. Maybe a bit too heavy for a frame they put so much effort in to bring the weight down.

I built my 1st 200SCi into a skinny little light bike, 9-sp DA STI's, FD, RD, FSA Team Issue CF crankset, carbonLord bars & stem, Race X Lite post, Ksyrium SSC's, Ti cassette. Sold it to a bike shop in CA. Fun bike, incredible stiffness, acceleration, climbing. Beat me to death on centuries, but a great criterium bike.

Kestrel was, still is, pretty good value in frames from then to now.

1992 Giant Cadex

Here's my Cadex...has Shimano 600 components and a aero carbon fork. It's disassembled right now. A great bike to ride.

This Vitus Carbone 3 isn't mine, but came through the shop last year for an overhaul:



I offered to buy it but the owner wouldn't bite......

I love my 200 EMS. These frames just have a great look and flow to them. Mine has the original Tri-Color 600 group on it.
