Ron Cooper, one of the great British master frame builders, passed away in 2012, so his frames are becoming rarer every day.  He used meticulous mitering of tubes to braze freehand, without jigs, so as to avoid building any stresses into the frame.  Some reviews claim Cooper's frame builds provide more stability, neutrality of handling, and responsiveness.  This fine example built for a small rider has an extra-tall headtube to offset the long reach necessary to clear 700c wheels from toe overlap.  Setup with a 9-speed Campagnolo Record gruppo, it comes with a tubular wheelset for racing as well as a clincher wheelset for training.  We think the Silca Impero frame pump painted to match is an especially nice touch.
