    Does anybody know what this frame is?
    It has had a respray and new decals put on it, but Giant said it is not one of theirs.
    Any Ideas?

    It looks like an Santa Cruz roadster, but the TT is different and the ST has more cut out from it.

    Santa Cruz said it's not one of theirs. Both them and Kestrel said it's probably a Giant but they said it isn't one of theirs either :confused:

    The bloke from Santa Cruz has e-mailed me back, 2 hours later and said the drop outs are different and that he doesn;t know if it's one of his! :D

    If he doesn't who does?! lol

    No mate,
    If you look at the cut in the seat tube, the one on the above frame goes near enough to the top.
    Thanks anyway.

    Roughly how old is it? Fuji has a couple 2004 bikes with a similar seat tube cut and seatpost clamp. It might be an older model Fuji.

    Bloke from here has got a flanders track bike. He reckons that there road frames are fairly harsh when it comes to road vibration if that helps. Looks like easton tubing because of up near the seat clamp, dont know what flanders are made of tho

    No it isn't but thanks anyway mate.
    The seat stay on my bike is placed lower down the seat tube and the seat tube it'self is cut away at the rear wheel.
    Cheers for your help,

    Looks like it is a Leader TT frame. You can tell because of the curve at the top of the seat tube around the tube and in where the binding bolt is. If you could see the back of the wheel cutout and see if it is welded in or open that would help, too.
