i forget the gearing, cross friendly for sure

my legs

ebayed this frame/fork combo and was pleasantly surprised by the condition. built it up with the parts i could find/afford at the time and rode the crap out of it. Eventually decided to sell so I could try mtn biking. Was a fun bike but not all that practical nor that comfortable....this older aluminum beast off road was just....rough.

actually

actually the braking was pretty solid even with the wrong levers....the issue was how much the frame felt like spaghetti sometimes and a rock like others, just no happy medium (for me).

yes, technically it's an ALAN/Guerciotti frame and YES they won lots of races with bikes like this, however their riders were probably lighter than my heavy arse and the bikes were brand spankin new then, not 20+ years old with clear signs of regular use....

Nice frameset

ALAN made Guerciotti and also ALAN won so many cyclocross races.

wrong levers

not sure this contributed to you not liking the bike, but those definitely look like the Tektro RL520. They are meant for linear pull, ie v or cable disc brakes. I made the same mistake once; they don't perform well with cantis.
