I'm a primeape so I don't have a camara but it looks just like this:

http://www.vintage-trek.com/images/t...rek1Racing.pdf

skip to page 7 and scan down to find the red Trek 660 with the yellow graphics-sorry for having to have you go to a different site, but that's the only picture I can show you.

Only difference on the looks is mine has silver rims, silver headset, and all silver components-which are all Suntour Superbe not what page 7 lists, in fact skip to page 8 and there is a 760 with the same Superbe Group that I use. I built the bike up from a Trek I crashed in 84 that had about 70% Superbe on it already, I transferred those over and bought the rest of the Superbe group at that time, which was the front and rear derailleurs, seatpost and the headset. I still use the yellow wires too, but I alternate the handlebar wraps, right now it has the yellow/red splash from Cinelli.

Cyclochica, I know you're looking forward to Saturday. :D
Are you bringing the Fuji to Atlanta when you visit later in the summer?


Great bike dexmax. :beer:


Khuon, good looking bike. :thumbup:
Does the curved seat tube affect the ride in any way?


Nice bike Nofx. :beer:

That is the plan, but the trip keeps getting pushed back. My Dad has had a set back, and my visiting may only make it worse. Right now I am looking at Columbus weekend in October, because after next month I can't get leave from work until then.

OK here's a pic of mine taken the day I got it(last fall). 2002 Litespeed Hyperion. Aluminum/Carbon frame, all Ultegra, no mods except a stem change and added a Cateye Astrale.....at least for now. Also just some cheap-azz toe clip pedals until I can decide which pedals/shoes I want to get :beer:

I don't think it effects the ride as much as it effects fit and positioning. It may effect the ride somewhat in how loads get transferred and such but there's no way for me to really tell. It does however allow me to ride a comparably smaller frame than I would normally while still maintaining a traditionally non-sloping top tube because as you raise the seatpost, you increase the effective top tube length by a much greater percentage than with a traditional straight seat tube. The curved seat tube positions the seat post angle at 66.5 degs. I would normally ride a 50cm or maybe even 52cm but my Aegis is a 48cm frame (actually measures out a tad closer to 49cm though).
