Well I added this 1998 Y Foil 66 to the mix. Got it last year but it's a bit rough and I keep having to sort out issues with it. Everything is working fine right now though.


Out on the road last week.

And the Final setup on the 1999 Y Foil 77.

Just tuned up my Trek 2120 with a NOS 7 speed hyperglide cassette, new bar tape, new tires, clean and lube up. Also put a new chain on my Giant cadex 980c.


debating if I wanna get a Selle Italia Turbo, Super Turbo, or a San Marco Regal for my Trek.

Exxon Graftek, prior to restoration. Ignore the “background.”

In keeping with my yen for odd-ball and significant carbon frames, from BF members.
Frameset, bars, post from MiloFrance , from France (The Mektronic is in a box).
Wheels from Chrome Molly
Shifters from Shrevvy
RD, FD from speedevil
Jersey from malcala622
Seat bag from Spaghetti Legs
Crankset from a BF member, but my PM's are cleaned out, so I can't remember.
Cassette from someone on BF, came in pieces and I cobbled it together.

Look KG-196 (1996)
Monoblade design by Ergo Concepts. Weighs as much as 2 Domane's.
CycleLab frame with integrated headset and funkadelic stem, fork is Vibtene.
2/3 x 10 Chorus Carbon Ergos mounted on Easton EC90 bars, Cinelli wrap.
Chorus 11 carbon compact crankset, UT Campy cups. Look Classic pedals.
Prologo Zero Nack saddle on Look 24.0 post, Jagwire cables/housing.
Veloce calipers, FD, RD. Campy Bullet wheels with Panaracer Catalyst Sport 23's.
Topeak bag. Bontrager cage. Hefty at 22+ lbs. My guess is great descender...ha.


Bottle cages match up well. Found the tires in my stash. Huge difference in appearance.


Happened to have the tape on hand. I'll have to touch up that stem face plate scratch.


Panaracer tires. Mounting the rear caliper is a challenge. It's difficult to access once a wheel is on the bike, so adjustment is a back/forth. RD hanger is very unique, strong, and I sure hope I never break it.


The rear "triangle probably weighs as much as my Cipollini frame. Stiff? You betcha.


Thanks to MiloFrance. Euro shipping issues prevented him from sending the Mavic wheels. No biggie. This thing begged the Bullets, and since weight is not an issue, the heavier Bullets are fine. They have great hubs, and I can use them on Shimano with Fulcrum freehub swap.


Back when frames had backbones.


Yes, it's as heavy as it looks. Dainty, it ain'ty.


I'll take the zip tie off someday, but I like it there for now. I also plan on a 12-30 cassette, so the chain is "uncut." The cable liner is a complete "run" for both the FD and RD, and the TT brake cable routing is complete internally. Easy peasy.


Lots of little things on the frame. The fork is supposed to be shock absorbing. No idea, and I'm not taking that assembly apart for any reason.


Ready to roll. One of those "looks fast" models that will result in raised eyebrows when someone picks it up and gets a hernia.

Awesome. I'm still at DA 9000 but waffle on wheels from Aeolus 5.0's to Roval CL60's.
I'd love to try my tubeless HED Ardennes, but the profile is low and the Y begs a deeper rim.
I'm very interested in that water bottle bag/cage there on the seat post/saddle.

I just gave away my 59cm frame like that, to a guy who appreciates the uniquity.
His wife says he's going R7000 in silver. I can't wait to see him finish it and have a dual-Y ride.
Found him the OEM Rolf's in blue, but the seller won't part with them for honest money (thinks they are USPS wheels).

Still looking for that elusive 54cm in good condition.
Would not be an addition, would be a swap.

Well the one in the picture is this one. The problem is those bottles hit on the bottom of your thighs even though they are shorter 20 oz bottles.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So a couple of weeks ago I found this one and ordered it. Between this and the modified mount on the bike I can now run two bottles with no issues.

Very interesting, James. Thanks for the heads up.
I'm sure the twin carrier would bump my thighs, but on a hot day, maybe some rhythm would help.
I like the second one, which will carry a tubular, so I ordered two.

UPDATE: Both came in 1 day (Amazon Prime) and I mounted them.
Pros: roominess. I have a tubular in one with a lot of other stuff. Bottle holder.
Cons: wipes out the seat post-mounted tail light location, and doesn't hold a taillight well (points at the ground).

Still, for the Y-Foil, I will definitely use it. Once I get some more taillight mounts figured out, I may get another.

My old Trek (LOOOOVE this color scheme)

Last summer's $100 craigslist score as I picked it up:


My favorite part is the wishbone/seat cluster:


I

I wish I owned both at the same time to compare, but I recall the Trek bring quite a bit more noodly. The Giant rides amazingly nice, doesn't get all squirrely out of the saddle, etc. But on the other hand I only ever rode the Trek stock/as shown and the 36cm? bars felt pretty narrow. The Giant was so nice as is that I felt it was worthy of some newer parts to become a more comfortable daily rider/mild all arounder/gravel grinder:

There may not be many Grafteks still out there but some of us are just not paying attention. Mine has been hiding in the basement for thirty years. Now, I'm thinking, "What do I do with this?" First, polish it up and take pictures.

Not sure about posting this here; however, it’s twenty years old. I can pull the post if anyone objects. Any-hoo this was my ‘ride’ today.. sporting some new Rubino Slicks.

So what do you think of this one? I'm trying to get a hold of a guy with a mint looking 2001 5200 triple. Want to get it geared really low and light for the really steep mountains. I've always understood these earlier Treks were pretty comfortable to ride.

I like it.. It rides smooth. It has a very relaxed seat tube angle. I hated the factory stem and spacers, so I replaced those. I just put the FP60s on there and stored the red Rolfs.

What is it? I love patriotic paint schemes but don't recognize that one.

Since this was revived. Here's a mid 90's Calfee Tetra Pro I recently got built up with Campagnolo 10 speed stuff. Running some older Reynolds DV46 wheels on it right now. Still not sure what I really think of it as every time I get it out the winds blowing too hard to get it opened up.

All good IMO and not really a carbon fan but I do have a white 5200 USPS in good shape that is languishing so.....

Any CF that makes it twenty years might as well be C+V.
