Did you see this one?
Seems they've been getting a bit scarce lately.

Colnago Carbitubo

I dared to rob a photo (in fact only linked to the auction pic):

Hi,

Pretty sure that's still carbon fiber. Same as 'graphite'. The nice weaves and clearcoating came later, I think, but essentially the same stuff.

Bit of an old thread I know but it was somewhat lacking some MTB input - so heres my wee collection

My pride first - Trimble -about 1988/89 vintage - paint isn't original and the parts are much more modern than the frame but its a very comfortable ride.



The Kestrels, these were in production from 1988 - 91 I believe, the white one has full DX and the black one full XT paint was shot on these so they ended up with new paint too.





not completely finished yet but heres the beasty bike, german made XC suspension bike with pace carbon forks



and finally a couple of frames that are waiting for some parts to finish them off

Kestrel CSX - (ignore the stem and forks please)



Hartmann Ram (Ugly but builds bloody light)



And finally - Specialized epic

REPOSTED BOTH BIKES AT END OF THREAD 2/14/09

And also, re: vintage carbon. Did a triathlon last weekend. Two "geezers" on identical OCR-3's got
a lot of attention. And the winner rode a 17-year old steel bike (Brew custom).

And folks, I've met Mr. Otto Rax. He's as nice as they come.

Bringing this thread back. Here is my 1993 2100 I just picked up. Threw on some Dura Ace/ Open Pro wheels, Campy Veloce 10 speed shifters, and a 10 speed 105 RD. Shifts and rides like a dream. Guessing weight is right around 20 lbs.

I think this 2500 started with the dayglow colors but the person I bought it from used it to commute to his job at Schwinn so he removed most of the logos. I took off most of the components and upgraded. It's a hair under 20lbs. Parked next to my 1974 Ritchey it doesn't seem vintage at all.

Here's my first carbon bike, an early 90s Calfee back when they were still "Carbonframes". I sold this a couple of years ago and wish I hadn't.

1988 Centurion Dave Scott Ironman Carbon, Shimano Ultegra 9-sp. RavX Speedmax saddle and Cinelli steering. The handling was a little "gyro" so I added the Slice fork. Much better.

Just found this thread. I guess my 96 Kestrel 200 EMS would be at home here.
