Looking at this S-Works frame on Ebay. Can't figure out, though, which year it is. Looks to be the 2001 SL e5 Festina frame, but with the paint scheme of the 2002 S-Works frame that has Aerotec tubing.

Specialized has been no help. Here's link to photo:

That guy has been trying to sell that frame for months. I don't know anything about Specialized frames but just be aware it's been for sale for a long time and they're been no takers....

It's got the same logo scheme as my 2001 Allez Comp. I don't think this is a Columbus tubed frame. I don't think the Columbus relationship began until the 2002 model year.

Ask for more photos. see my comments in the photo.

I believe the Red/White color scheme was the alternate to the Festina blue/yellow paint job in 2001. That model did have Columbus "E5" tubing. I'm sure we sold a couple of those in that color, that year.

nice and heavy steel steerer. What a pig. I used to have frame/fork, I am glad I sold it before it cracked. combo weighed more than the same sized Caad4. Granted, specialized bikes are not bad overall.

woof the god.
