Top quality Paletti frameset, for 650c wheelset (triathlon).
A very unique frameset made from high quality, lightweight Columbus TSX tubing. With internal shifter cables running through the bottom bracket shell, and internal rear brake cable through the top tube. Split seat tube with custom BB shell. Nice custom lugs reinforced with fins. Vertical rear dropouts, for 8+ speed Ergopower shifting. Custom mount for the front derailleur, currently with a Campagnolo Nuovo Record derailleur fitted (included). Provision for one waterbottle cage, on the downtube.
The whole frame is finished with a nice metallic twist on the classic British Racing green, with subtle air-brushed pink and silver accents. Three-quarter chrome fork blades, and three-quarter chromed seat/chain-stays.
In excellent condition, was built up by for display and then carefully disassembled. Very hard to find any blemishes, with only a couple of very minor paint chips around the bottom bracket shell and around the fork blades. Chrome is bright and looks great. No rust, dents or cracks.
The ‘headset’ is a custom adapter just for the photographs, and is not included!
