    Mystery Frame...Please help me figure out what this is.

    I have an unusual frame but I have no idea who manufactured it. Was hoping somebody would recognize this. It is designed for 26" wheels, probably for urban or trials. Serial number on bottom of bottom bracket is: LQ060100419. If you click on the pics, they'll get bigger for better clarity. Thanks for any input!

    My guess is it's 2002-2006 era because it has both disc and v-brake mounts. The 06 at the beginning might mean 2006. It has the very low standover which would be typical of trials but I'd expect Magura hydro rim brake mounts instead of standard v-brake posts. And it also has that overbuilt front end that was common with earlier dirt jumpers. The other thing that would make me think it might be toward the later of my guessed era is the wishbone at the chainstay/bb junction. That's more commonly seen more recently. So I'd say it's intention is urban/jump and it's from 2006 or so.

    Yeah, I also gathered all that by looking at the frame, but I have no idea who made it.

    I guess nobody knows. That's a little disappointing because I doubt it's a one-off.

    I have no idea what a cube frame looks like. Instead of just throwing out a name that people may not know, do a google image search and post a link to the frame you think it might be. But, before posting it, compare the images above to the images you found.

    All I'm saying is why post the name of bicycle manufacturer when you haven't even compared the two frames yourself? If you want "try to help" that would be the way to go. Listing random manufacturer names wont help here, unfortunately.

    If there is someone who actually knows this frame, I'm sure they'll see it and just post what it is without the need to list random things. If no one knows it, then it'll remain nameless...lol

    I would if I didn't already have one. But it's built up now anyway so it'd be too much trouble bringing it into the kitchen when needed.
