New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Hey Guys,  I am having trouble IDing my frame.  The PO said it was a Colony, which it is not.  I was thinking a 2010 kink Apex, nope. 

The Frame has removable gyro tab holes.

Top Tube is 21.25. 

A small gusset on the Down tube.

Removable seat post clamp.

Round supports attaching the seat stays and chain stays. 

The serial # is K10AY0008*.

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Anyone have a decent guess?  A point in the right direction?
The seat clamp not being part of the frame, is not used much anymore.  And the Round tube supporting the stays, instead of a fatter tube coming from bb to chain stays..  Those 2 things seem to stand out to me.
Per emailing Colony and Kink, it is not one of theirs. 
When I stumbled onto The 2010 Kink Apex, I was so sure thats what it was.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated,  Thanks!

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

it ALMOST looks like a Hoffman Bama, but I dont think it is...

this is a tough call, NS frames look a lot alike, but I am sure you have noticed that already lol

No engravings in the headlines or anything. Paints dense to see dropout and stays area

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

need pics of the gusset, the brake cable stop and the bottom bracket. the dropouts should be the dead giveaway, but I've never seen any like that before.

it's not an S&M, Fit Aitken, or a Premium Harrington

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Check the bottom bracket for more numbers and some kind of letters .On the opposite side from the serial number.Paint looks thick so it may be hard to find .


It may be "rare",but its only worth what someone will pay!

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Paint is super dense.

I was thinking it reminded me of old fits also.  I was going 2010 because of what PO said, and the serial seemed like it could be 2010.

Thanks Wing for the guess and the repost in NS section.

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

I emailed Kink, and they said it was not one of their frames.   He ended up saying this after I sent a pic of the drop out.

Re: New School Frame ID ** Need Help **

Are the dropouts hollow? Could be a older fly? Stolen brand? It's something taiwan
