I was curious as the look color wise like 386's but in these shots they seem to be the Alum compacts?
I know Oscar Seville always seemed to ride those before too.
Anyone know?

Thanks just curious
Probably a new KX light.look271

I thought so at 1st too but the bikes
they are using seem to have a wishbone stay
The KX series does not.
Check this out.look271
Sep 13, 2002 3:17 PM This may be it, the AL 384. Looks like the bike.
I think the old Kelme team frame PJ was better looking btw. nmSpunout

This year the Kelmes had quite a few different models in their stable. I stayed in the same hotel as the team on the evening Botero won the stage in Les Deux Alpes.

They used multiple versions and at that time none were KX light's and only a few used the compact. Sevilla was one of them. I have quite a few pics that I have not developed just yet. Maybe I'll drop off film tomorrow. If I recall correctly the compacts were Alum with no carbon.....

I was wondering the same thing.
At first I thought lightweight but the hub flanges are small?
Sapim's maybe?
