Novus Ductor, Cantiflex
You can call it a Batchins or a Hates or a Hetchbat, as you please. (You may remember that the bat was Bates' symbol.) Very few were made, only as special orders. The tubes were acquired from Peter Bates; the lugs are Novus Doctor. The components include a complete Campag Record group set with Tectro brakes. It was ordered in December 1996 and delivered in March 1997.
The same rider also owns a Flying Gate with Cantiflex tubes. Click here for the Bates-Gate hybrid feature.
