Tommasini





Thanks to Doug who writes in, "Thought I'd send pics of my bike (Tommasini "Velocista") your way. Columbus Max all around, including the fork. I got it used and don't know all the history, I believe it's a 1991. It's 63cm, and came with Shimano 600 components, I have since switched to all Campy Record."

Loomans



My thanks to Stephan who sends in photos of a 'Loomans' Columbus MAX bike and writes, "Loomans is local bike shop in Belgium. According to the previous owner the frame itself was built by Ridley. Before Ridley started selling bikes under their own name, they sold their frames to local bike shops in Beglium and The Netherlands painted in the colors of the shops, so this could be right. The top tube and the fork are not Columbus MAX. As you can see, the frame itself is exactly the same as some 'Diamant' frames you have posted on your blog. Probably those were built by Ridley as well."
