Can anyone identify this frame?(15 posts)

Can anyone identify this frame?bboc

I bought this bike used, and I have no idea what kind of frame it is. The seller says that it was a Pinerello prototype, but I'm not sure I beleive that. The Bike has been painted, and all the decals are added later. I can make out the easton logo on the top tube underneath the paint, bike seels aluminum to me (if that's possible). The downtube is Aero. The carbon seat stay says H.M. Carve. all of the parts are the lower end stuff the guy had lying around, so components shouldn't help at all.
I know I got a good deal, but I'm extremely curious what this thing is.

Is that a Douglas decal? Maybe the seller is just full o' ____.

Don't they sell Douglas' in Colorado Cyclist or Nashbar?

Doubt its a Pinarello though.
I never really thought that it....bboc

was a pinerello. The decal does say Douglas-Jester, but the guy could have put any decal on there.
It is a stolen resprayed bike.......african

I met the seller and he was in a nice truck with his wife and kids. I wouldn't have figured him for the theif type.

It is a bike sold by Colorado Cyclist and appears to be a pretty good ride, that is if you did not over pay.

Check out the site, I think it is to get the low down.

Douglas is Colorado Cyclist's house brand. I don't know who makes their frames for them. Call 'em and ask 'em.

It is a Douglas Jester. It is identical to REI's Novara Trionfo of 2002. The fork should be an Advanced Composites. Extremely doubtful this frame was in any way a Pinarello (development or otherwise). Douglas is, in fact, distributed by Colorado Cyclist. Some Douglas frames are rebadged Rocky Mountains which are rebadged ... you get the idea. Odds are ... Made in China or Taiwan using standard tube sets and production methods.

I am pretty sure the Trionfo lat year didn't have drop outs like that or Carve seat stays. Similar in design though...
Thanks for the fast response!bboc

I feel better knowing the general pedigree of my bike.
