One of the early Corima Puma, the original owner told me that he bought it in 1991, shortly after these frame were introduced. The bike is completed with Corima 4 spokes carbon wheels, a Corima seat post and Campagnolo shifters and brakes. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do :D

Campagnolo never made "breaks". They have, however, made "brakes" :smartass: :smartass: :smartass: :welcome:
Love the bike. Lusted after one back in the day when they were around!! :beerchug:

You ever see the super record ti bb and spindles? Campy has a long history with "break." :D

Back on topic: it's amazing how many elements of the Corima are now common: deep headtube area, curved top tubes, etc.

Awesome bike!! I love it. Please keep the wheels on as the fit is perfect. Also reminds me of the old Corima Fox tri bike they used to make.

Superb, a childhood wannahave relived

I think the Look KG296 gets the award for 'Bike Most Before Its Time', but the Corima was also ahead of its time. I remember the track version of this frame more than the road one.

Yes, Corima Fox was a cool bike as well. Comparable to the CAT Cheetah which was introduced around 1995.

I do not really use it, it's one more in my little collection. Maybe I use it once or twice a year, perfect for a ride on a sunny day 8)

That's true. Well, Look KG296, that's still on my wish list. These days, frame designs like the Corima Puma are very common. But I remember the time when Corima showed up the first time these bikes, compared to other bikes they looked so futuristic. Way ahead of its time!

I will keep it, sure!
