Furtherance of sports and sports talents in Germany are traditionally a task which is taken care of by the single states.
The largest of the states with roughly 18 Mio inhabitants is North Rhine Westfalia. To support their best athletes ,several training bases were erected where top class sport would have a home. One of the bases for cyclists is located in Büttgen. It is where our time trial frame comes from.
In the 1980s and 1990s Faggin time trial bikes like this one were the workhorses of the states Team. The Team NRW would consist of some of the finest talents, of which this western part of Germany gave forth to. They were professionally trained and were able to use machines just like ours to compete in national and international races.
It is a straightforward low-pro frame made from Columbus tubing and whithout any fancy extras - well maybe the chromed rear triangle and the aero shaped straight fork count as a bit of luxury. The paintjob resembles the Italian flag but in fact it shows the colours of the NRW coat of arms.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
