I took this frame out of a dumpster, so I'm not sure of it's heritage, but it's a cheap Chinese aluminum frame. I call it a le monjello...lemon jello, get it? I painted it and built it up with decent components and Planet Bike fenders in olive green. It has Vitoria Rubino tires, and it flies! Between the stiff aluminum frame and the 120psi tires, it will rattle your teeth, but it's fun.
