    I was going to post something about vintage cyclocross bikes. does anybody have a list of brands/models of the 80s and 90s that were specifically for cyclocross? I am looking into getting a vintage cyclcross frame.

    Thanks

    Alan is a great company that's been doing 'cross for a long time. They're known for their alu frames. Here's a pic from another BF forum: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...art-II/page611

    I have seen vintage Colnago, Pinarello, Guerciotti, Gios, and Eddy Merckx CX bikes for sale on eBay over the years, but they are not very common.

    I saw a kid on campus (Wisconsin - White Water) running that Gazelle (or one very much like it) as a SS/FG over the Summer.

    I was on a huge ride and totally kitted out and didn't want to roll up to a summer school hipster and do the bike talk thing. I was only there to fill up on water.

    Cuda, is that Gazelle yours? What is the market price on that bare frameset?

    Thanks Barrettscv for sharing so many great photos of your awesome Simoncini! I've got a Simoncini road frame I've built up with modern stuff that I'm excited to debut this summer. You've only made the wait that much harder...

    I'll put some pics of my lugged steel Bianchi Reparto Corse up if Barrett can tell me how to post large images like his. When I post a photo it wants me to attach it and then it shows up a little thumbnail you have to click on.

    ok I figured out how to post larger images through Photobucket links. Anyways here's my 1996 Bianchi Reparto Corse. It's lugged steel with a one inch threaded headset so I guess that makes it vintage per the requirements of this thread, though it's only 16 years old. Like all Reparto Corse, it was offered as a frame set only I believe. Double butted Dedacciai Zero UNO tubeset. I bought it used off eBay years ago. Components are a bit of a mish-mash, but mostly Ultegra or Dura-ace for hubs, BB, shifters, RD. Ritchey WCS compact crankset, Paul Mini-moto front brake. These were taken before my first race last fall, I've made some minor changes but it's pretty much like this:

    That Paul Mini Moto brake is a good solution. Very few Cantilever brakes are a fit with these old forks with their narrow post centers. It should also eliminate shudder.

    We sold some of these Zeus P66 Cyclocross bikes in the mid 1970s. Zeus was big in CX back then and a lot of their bikes were rebadged to race under other colors.

    ZeusP66CyclocrossBikeCropped.jpg

    The frames were Durifort and the brakes were probably MAFAC cantilevers with Zeus levers??? They were 5 speeds with a singe barcon on the right side. The angles were relaxed and they had long wheel bases.

    We converted them to 10 speeds and sold them as touring bikes which they were ideally suited for.

    Here's some pictures of a 1975 Gios CX bike:

    This is a staged photo for a Gios ad. The bike Roger De Vlaeminck is carrying is a standard Gios road bike.

    Here's shots of De Vlaeminck on real Gios CX bikes.

    A Colnago CX bike

    We started riding off road on road bikes in 1976. Used CX sewups whenever possible, otherwise 700x35c "Ville" urban bike clinchers that we got from France.

    If I was looking for a vintage cyclocross bike, I would try to find an old Ritchey Swiss Cross. This was one of my Holy Grail bikes for many years but I never succeeded in finding one in my size. Meanwhile, Ritchey reintroduced the Swiss Cross, so you can buy a new one in just about any size. Ritchey also makes a Breakaway Cross, which has similar geometry to the Swiss Cross but the frame can be broken down for traveling, and it also has mounts for fenders and racks. I bought a used Ritchey Breakaway Cross a couple of years ago, but it's not old enough to be considered vintage. I love this bike.
