Ahahaha, you have no idea how slowly I set that up against the wall, to avoid any semblance of scratching. That saddle is too glorious to treat that way.

Ok Robbie,

You got me checking this place a couple of time a day, usually I am not on the computer much. if you don't tell soon, I am going have to come over and hit you on the nose I still think its an Aegis. One of the guys on our club had one in the early 90s. It was heavy as heck but looked real cool.

Oh jeez, sorry to keep you hanging guys, yes, it's an aegis. I thought that'd been covered already. I was presuming it was a Basso specifically, but I guess it could be any one of the brands that aegis made bikes for.

I looked at three Aegis frames the other day, and made an offer on one, probably the late 90's, more recent than IthaDan's, but preceding the very aero most recent models.

It's barely C&V, but I picked up another 'vintage' carbon frame last weekend as well:

The 1972 Line Seeker's almost done!





Over the holidays, some major milestones completed with the wheelset, brakes, stem and handlebar.
I'll update the build thread to describe exactly how they went.

If I was going to spend a few thou on a new carbon bike, I'd strongly consider an Appalachian-series R3, from these guys:

I picked up my first carbon bike yesterday which also happens to be my "nicest" vintage bike to date. Full 7400 dura ace down to the pedals!!

Here it is as acquired with some wonky 3ttt/Scott aero bars:




the bars had to go, and my goodness was it disgusting underneath that bartape


















































so here she is as of today



ahhhhhh, now THAT'S more my style!

Glad you got it! It's looking great!,.......... but for a second there, I thought that was "splash" patterned tape on the replacement bars. So glad that it wasn't! Whew!!
Curious, what will you end up doing with the goofy Scott tri bars??

Haha, thanks! It's actually some forte logo tape I had laying around around. I'm actually pleased with how it looks on there.
Haven't really thought about it. I have no forseeable use for them. I may just clean them up and list them for sale hoping that someone needs them for a vintage tri build

I bought the 87 Kestrel 4000 last year for $900, but had to spend $200 to change over to clinchers. My current investment is $1200 with all the changes and the ride, handling and comfort is worth it! Thanks, Mike

Current image of the Aegis/Basso/Trek... thing:



I know I wasn't asked specifically about my vintage carbon bike, but I just found a screenshot of the CL ad (notice the section of CL for a clue why it hadn't sold in four days or whatever it was before I got there) in a folder on my drive, and, well, I figured I'd share.

Someone that I know has a pair of these old non-steel bikes.
A race and a montain bike of the same provenance.
The story behind is that they would have been made together at the Suntour factory.

I have difficulties to believe that they were more than assembled there.
This because the 2 frames appears to be each version of Sakae Liteage frames.
I have the pictures but they are not mine

Next up will be a Kestrel 4000 at the end of the year. All because of seeing Gioscinelli's one.
