“I don’t know where this frame is made. I think it’s a cheap Italian frame. Has thin drop outs . Thinner than campy but thicker than really cheap drop outs . There is a stamp on rear drops but it’s only partially visible. I can make out,”RATI”. I haven’t googled it. Keeping this a pre internet old school mystery requiring actually talking to people. It’s pretty heavy but perfect for city smashing. 42c tires. I had 47c on there but they rubbed all over the place. I like the old road frames made for 27″ wheels cus you can rock modern 700c wheels with fat tires like this and the clearances are tight.” Oakland Andrew

Can Matt from Via or someone else with insane deep bike knowledge tell us more?
