Hmmmm....first time seeing this I think. I reckon I can play a bit too.

1998 Y-66 I picked up recently. Not the prettiest of shape but it sure does fly! Once I got out of the headwinds yesterday I don't think this dropped under 20 mph for the final 13 miles.



And then, like Robbie's above, here's the NOS 1999 Y-77 I found this past winter. This one is set aside to take climbing again this evening.

Gentlemen! You're killing me! Nice rides, all! James, like the spokes with the Trek frame. All of those bikes remind me of the Bowden "Space lander". If that bike design was released today in CF it would fly off the shelves in my opinion; what with the general population sucking up the "retro" cruisers, balloon, and "fat" tire bikes. I'd be curious as to what it might weigh in at given new materials technology and all. I know the limited production model in the 60's weighed a little over 50 lbs and was considered too heavy ( my Raleigh "Sports" is 55 lbs). So how did all those other plus 50 lb English and American 3 speed bikes and the like sell so well? Anyways, those frames make my newer carbon frame look ancient (did I say it was "cheap"?). Quick question, are those frames being produced "in-house" by the branded companies, or are they having the frame manufacturing outsourced to a "frame production plant" in Kashmir somewhere? Thanks for the views; also making want to get the Colnago on the road soon; any thoughts on wheels? I'm thinking vintage Mavic Cosmic Carbones. Already found an '07 complete front for a couple hundred, but no rear. Might get used on GT Saturn team frame, the Colnago needs a matching set.

The Y-Foil is definitely still a gamer, 20 years on. I think Trek made them in-house, but @JohnDThompson would know for sure. No idea who made the Look, and frankly, bought it for reasons other than to win my 9th TdF…. It's got some "kewel" factor.

I so wish @steppinthefunk was still lurking here. He'd be the one I'd send it to.

Picked this up last year to have another triple setup for the mountains.



This was a local find but a bit of a mess. Gave it a full service, new bearings in the headset, new stem/bars, tape, bigger gears in back, new chain, Thomsen Seatpost , and Fizik saddle. Swapped the heavy Rolf wheels for a nice set of Zonda's. Wound up at 18 lbs 5 ozs and it quick and comfortable on the road. A set of C.F. tubulars would make 'er a 17 lb bike with no problem. It's -3 f. outside right now so I may take the time this morning to hit this frame with some rubbing compound and polish, it's a bit dull and abused.

And I'm still waiting for this beauty to be done.

A pair of Looks, 496 TT bike, currently residing at my son's house and my 481SL, Look's last aluminum lugged carbon bike. It is my go to bike for long hilly rides, has been taken to France several times. A smooth lively rider, feels very similar in ride quality to my steel Limongi with slightly more responsive handling

Interesting little shuffle step from Trek, the 2005 5000
First year for the Madone, and the 5200 disappeared from the catalog.
But the Made in USA 5000 shows up with OCLV 120 and a mix of Ultegra and 105


2006, the 5200 shows up in the catalog again with Ultegra, but only for one year.
The 5000 moves to Taiwan and TCT carbon.
Has to be a story there.
