I thought ti-lites had triple TT cable routing just like a race and race lite?...a reinforced seatcollar area - one thicker diameter tube welded to the ST below the collar...and solid (not machined) dropouts, oh yeah and a striker plate just like the steel frames.

Or am I wrong and this is some rare version, that I will regret bringing to your attention?

Nope, you're right. Wakey wakey, looks pretty flakey. Nice catch.

Just had a look in my 96 and 97 bontrager catalogues, both show solid dropouts, one detail i can't see in the ebay but is on the catalogue bikes and i am sure on the real ones i have seen is a weld a couple of inches below the top tube on the seat tube, plus the three cable top tube routing etc, looks odd.

By the way how much do catalogues go for????

... yeah, that's not a bontrager

... no gussets that i can see, and kb hasn't done under-the-bb cable routing since the 80s (so basically never on a ti bike).

attached is a pic of a real ti lite... mine.

buyer beware!!
