Can you please help me identify this bike. I think it is aluminium as it is only 9kg all up. I suspect it is quite good as it has very good gear such as Shimano Ultegra. I appreciate your help.

    If you are looking at a bike with Ultegra components, then this looks like a late 80s model due to the downtube shifters instead of STI in the brake levers. How many gears does it have? – kickert Jul 23 '18 at 23:39

    Please do the magnet test - I think you might find that's a steel frame, so will attract a magnet. Tubes look WAY too small to be 90s aluminium, and downtube shifters imply 80s or early 90s. Another possibility, its a more modern steel bike custom built to older standards, hence the curved stays which is post-2000. Also the rear seat stays attaching below the saddle - another modern design not 80s. In any way, its a gorgeous wee bike and I'd ride it if I were smaller. Enjoy riding it! – Criggie Jul 24 '18 at 0:28

    It appears to have a triple crank which makes it even more interesting. – kickert Jul 24 '18 at 0:42

    Please note that it’s common for bike thieves to repaint a bike and replace components to hide its origin. So please do run the frame number through BikeIndex.org or other serial checker — and don’t forget to register it if it’s in the clear! Beautiful bike! – RoboKaren Jul 24 '18 at 1:00

    No absolute valuation will be possible for such a machine. Valuations are often difficult even for recent bikes from major manufacturers where the model and year are known. It's worth what you can persuade someone to pay you for it. – Argenti Apparatus Jul 24 '18 at 13:07
