Contest: Who's frame is this?(6 posts)

Contest: Who's frame is this?Tig

This Spectrum (looks like pursuit) track frame is posted on their site but doesn't provide the rider's name. They are a '94 and '96 world champion, a 2000 olympic champion, and a '91, 92, '93, '96, '97, '98, '99, '00 national champion. I don't know the answer, so I won't know who is correct. That also means there is no winning prize, but you'll impress the rest of us!

That'd be Marty Nothstein, I believe. 1994 and'96 World Champion in the Keirin, 2000 Olympic Gold in the Sprint. Nice frame. I didn't win it, did I?
That was initial guess but then that wouldn't be his framePODIUMBOUNDdotCA

He rode a GT I believe in the Olympics so it wouldn't be his frame. But it does have the stars and stripes so I think it could be him.

Does it have a dented top tube? (nm)superdog

I know for a fact this was made by Spectrum to Marty Nothstein's specifications, although I don't know if it was made for the intentions of him racing it. They had the frame at a booth at the T-Town velodrome all last season as a raffle prize for a charity I believe. All the championships alluded to are Marty's.

Looks like a winner! Go to Tom and collect the frame...Tig

...I wish! I wonder who the lucky T-town winner was? I think I've decided that a custom Spectrum Ti will be in my future, but it will be a while before I can afford one, but worth every cent.
