Hello everybody,

I hope you all are well, this is my first post here since I just HAD to join after finally getting a lot closer to finding out what my bike is after a ton of searching! I have a bike very similar to one of the Aegis types posted previously although without shifters on the frame. I know very little about it and I would love to learn a bit more because I need a replacement rear derailleur hanger! I will post some pictures tonight after work in the hope that some of you might be able to shed some light on it and maybe tell me a bit more about it.

Oops...I see now I need 10 posts before I can post pictures and also cannot share URLs. Are there any ways around this? I would love to show you all the bike!

Definitely along the lines of the Aegis offerings.
I see what you mean about an RD hanger.
No doubt one can be fabricated, or perhaps one of the Cannondale RD hangers that clamp onto both sides of the dropout.

For a drop-out hanger on a carbon bike, a person should try Calfee. With the repair service, they may have seen this in the past. Certainly they can fabricate Al and Ti bits.

www.calfeedesign.com

Maybe I should post detailed pics of my TetraPro, But I don't think of it as vintage carbon; 130 rear, threadless fork, sporting Campy 10speed, I think of it as my modern carbon bike. Sub-20# in size 60 with bottle cage and pedals. Frame = 3.0lbs. 5 years left on warranty.

Firstly, thank you very much Robbie for uploading my pictures! Also, thank you to everybody who chipped in for some info on the bike! I have it a few months now but I prefer to use it in dry weather only since I have a daily for commuting to work but it took me so long to get any information at all on it so it's been idle for a while. I haven't had much luck with it in terms of bottom bracket replacement in an incompetent local shop and added to that was a broken derailleur hanger.

I took the DH to another local shop for a potential replacement with no luck so my other choice was having it welded or another one made, costing more than what I paid for the bike itself I think I will check out those links you all suggested and see if I can find one or else I will have to fly back home and make one myself on my little table-top milling machine.

I also wondered if anybody knew anything about T-Gear? I saw in an earlier post that others also couldn't get any results on Google because I'd like to know exactly what my bike is.I did also come across the Aegis site but it seemed just like you said Chuckk that it's not really what you might expect, with no specifications anywhere or anything to do with their older models.

There certainly are some very beautiful steeds posted here, I'm certainly very glad I joined!

My Aegis.
Aegis briefly made track ends for the Aro Svelte frame in the 2000's during Fixed Gear heyday. The track ends were "normale", creating a 120mm rear spacing.
My “abnormale” bike uses 135mm hubs. I machined the track ends to 135mm. I locked the freewheel to create fixed cog function. Cog spacers to create the chain line. 53x19.
This remains my favorite ride, took it out yesterday.

Aegis (the company) is gone. It seems like some factory new-old stock exists.
This ebay account (not mine) created last summer, has some parts now and then:

C4 Air One ready to ride.

The C4 is complete now: Campagnolo 8sp. , 3ttt handlebars, San Marco sadle.

Finished at last.


The final product: 8.8 kg!


Cut down to Size!
The only real problem I had were the front brake calipers. Dual action brakes touched the wheels, so I had to modify the single action rear brakes to fit at the front. Also I had to saw off a bit from the brake Pads to clear the fork.

1992 Specialized Epic Carbon

I will try to get a non-indoor photo of this soon, but here is my first-ever vintage carbon fiber framed bike! For us tall guys that need 63cm+ frames, Specialized never made anything "for us", at least for a while initially, which has always baffled me. Why an American company would not offer a 63 or 64cm version of any of their bikes when everyone else did, is beyond me. Steel topped out at 62cm CTT, and carbon at 60cm CTC.

This frameset was a mostly-complete bike (sans wheels and chain, at least) that leaned against a wooden rack near the back of the warehouse section of a local non-profit bike ship that I and others volunteer at. The back of the warehouse is stuffed with bikes, but of course, any decently trained eye can spot the special ones quickly. I knew it was big by looking at it, but also knew through research that Specialized didn't make stuff that was truly my size. I measured this anyway, and it was near 62cm CTT.

A few more weeks go by and this thing is still there. Then one week it's on the peg as a frameset with shifters and a BB (7-speed Shimano 105). I see it on a Tuesday night when volunteering, measure it in some critical dims, and tell myself I'm going to come in the next day (I had it and the rest of the week off) and triple check my measurements, and if that's good, then pick it up. It "did not help" that it was in great shape with only minor clear coat fish-eyeing in a couple of spots (for the carbon) along with nary a dent or scrape. It measured what I would call a "62cm enough" frame (CTT), even if in the catalog it was spec'd as a 60cm CTC. We are laying on the floor of my "smallest frame size I can comfortably fit [while having it look good easily]" and I further tell myself if it's a "meh" ride or just plain too small, then I know the parts I will put on it and can sell it quickly, thus keeping with my fleet reduction plan.

Well, all of these components (on the Epic now) were on my now-sold '85 Peloton frameset, which were on a '91 Cannodale SR800 frameset before being removed due to the Cannondale's lack of cooperation with them (ride and out of saddle climbing) and me. The Peloton was muuuuuch better, but I removed the pieces to be able to sell the frameset. So on they went to the Epic.

And well, it's like Tange Prestige but even better. Except for my Land Shark (also Prestige), in that it's equally good but different in magic ride quality. I've had to look down a few times to see if I had a flat tire. Very very smooth and absorbing of minor bumps and vibrations in the road. Loves to rock back and forth and climb and accelerate out of the saddle. Moves well when in the saddle. It's really low when in the drops, and the exquisite 7400 Dura-Ace levers flare out and make brake actuation in the drops a stretch, buuuuuut it's just a wonderful ride. Smooth arcs in cornering, but you have to "pull it down" into it as it will take a high line as opposed to diving into a corner or "falling into" it naturally. It looks like I have another keeper (or at least super long-term-er).

18.7 lb fully ready, as pictured. Also, this bike just looks so hot--can't stop staring!

I wonder whether the early lugged carbon tube design had some limitations, or the manufacturers were being exceptionally cautious. Seems like the monocoque frames would be stiffer in the taller frames.

Thanks! I will be working on that! We're going to be rainy for a few days here, but then it'll be dry and I'll see what I can snap.

I remember a Paceline thread where some of the original frame designers/builders commented on the original carbon Allez models, saying they very much overbuilt them to, in essence, ensure durability [both under a stong rider, and over time as our FEA technology along with computing power is immensely more advanced than it was 30 years ago]. Calfee had the crazy gusseting. It'd be nice to try a SuperSix Evo as it's full monocoque carbon and a traditional diamond frame (well, super close).

I forgot to mention that the 18.7 lb weight it actually heavier than my all aluminum 1991 Cannondale SR800, which came in at 18.5 lb with these exact components. This Epic looks great, but man, that Cannondale looked like it was born to have those pieces on it.

New to me Trekenstein 5900, probably a 1993, according to the friendly neighborhood Trek dealer. It's a stew of original and replacement bits and bobs.

It's purple, not blue. I think Trek called the color "Abyss." Identification is tricky online because purple is notoriously difficult to reproduce accurately, both film and digital. Varies with the color temperature of the light, white balance, camera sensor and internal processing, and the viewer's display. My phone usually captures the purple color, depending on ambient light. My Nikon jpegs default to blue, so I make color corrections in Lightroom.

IOW, some of those blue Trek 5900's you see online might be purple.

It's been through a few changes since I got it from texaspandj in April. He set it up just fine, but of course I had to mess it up.

He told me the 5900 wouldn't feel much different from my Ironman, and it's true. Lighter, sure. But a reassuringly familiar ride, so handling is pretty much the same.

I swapped between Nitto B65LL and Cinelli Eubios drops, and back to the Nitto. The B65LL feels like a compact version of my Ironman's WinPista drops. The Cinelli felt awkward when I'd stand to pedal while in the drops. I'll use it on a future gravel bike project.

And I've swapped between black tape and, currently, hi-viz yellow Arundel Synth Gecko. The latter is well padded but heavy and tricky to wrap gracefully. It tends to look meaty, like deformed sausages. I'll switch back to black foam tape soon. The Synth Gecko might go on my hybrid's albatross bar.

And I've switched from the excellent Dura-Ace downtube shifters to MicroShift brifters. Easier to shift while standing to climb.

The barely padded black Selle Italia suits my narrow bony butt better, dunno why. At least with padded shorts or bibs. Too much padding chafes the down-under.

Anyway, fun bike. Especially on climbs, always my weakness.

But I still ride the Ironman more often. It's more comfortable on our bombed out pavement.
Current version of Trekenstein. Other pix wouldn't upload.

I've got two Specialized Epics, a '91 (first generation) and '94 (second generation).
While the '94 was assembled with shed parts of a lower quality, it is more than a pound lighter than the '91!
Tapping on the tubes point to much shorter internal spuds on the lugs.



Interesting points are that on the '94, the full paint cover seals the joints from water intrusion and corrosion.
And, there's no frame material decal on the '94, so you could think it is just a very light steel bike if you didn't know.
It must have been difficult to market a lugged carbon Specialized against an OCLV Trek at the time to people looking at carbon.

@Chuckk they both look lovely, but I really think the red/black (second) is beautiful. I think it's the red (I'd like another 60cm in addition to my blue one, just because of that). Very cool note on the weights of both--thank you for that!

Marketing against the OCLV Treks could very likely have been difficult as the Treks looked futuristic and the Specialized models looked a lot more traditional, but I find the Specs to be proportioned very well, and the Treks to be a bit awkward. Not that I'd turn away a 62cm Trek frameset in good shape for a great price, but, you know...
