Hi John, when did these frames change from 853 to the recent 858. I have one in 858 for sale in complete bikes with 853 forks and was not aware of an earlier 853 version of this frame.

The 853 version was fillet brazed and made it the UK. It came in red and blue with white decals. Don't know when they stopped but this review is from 2006 https://roadcyclinguk.com/gear/tested-t ... drikV4P.97
