The wheels aren't fancy enough for the frame.

Cool pic! I love finding

Cool pic! I love finding abandoned buildings while exploring new locations. Your wheelset may not be that great but at least you have a good frame to start with & that is the most important!



Those seat stays sure don't look like Colnago.

The frame is a mystery. it

The frame is a mystery. it has none of the telltale colnago stamps anywhere on it. I can't find 'cross bikes in any of the old colnago catalogs that are online. it's very much a dedicated 'cross frame, though: high bb, good tire clearance, cables out of the way, no bottle cages, etc. It came to me in ratty enough condition that I don't think someone slapped colnago decals on something else. It's got campy dropouts, but Reynolds 531 tubing. 80s Colnagos seem to have campy dropouts with Columbus tubing. I have no doubt that Colnago made this bike exist, but I can't find too much information about their 80s 'cross bikes. It came from the Netherlands, so I blame the Dutch.

None the less, it's a wonderful bike to ride. It probably thought its retirement to the States was going to be a little more easy going than its routine traversals of rocky Connecticut trails, but no complaints yet.

Very nice frame!!!

Very nice frame!!!
