Quintana Roo Superform

This was a NOS frame that I found on ebay. I wanted to do something different; I have plenty of road, track and pursuit bikes, so I thought building a triathlon bike would be a good idea. All the parts on it are either NOS or lightly used. The Superform was one of the most influential triathlon bikes of all time. I was told that no two Superforms were alike, each one received a unique paint job. I love the delicate wishbone seat stay and dual 650c setup. I found the wheels for on ebay; the Pelissier 2000 Professional hubs are super smooth and who doesn't love bladed spokes? The rims have no trace of brake wear and the freewheel was NOS, so I am pretty sure these never even saw the road. Weight as shown is 18.1 lbs. After showing this build to several people in the cycling world, there is some speculation that this was one of the early Superform frames built by Rob Stowe of Phase 3 Cycles.
