My oldest C&V is not as old as many of yours - a '71-72 Super Course.



My NEWEST is a '95 Marin Pine Mountain - but it's a moot point whether it's really C&V.
(It's indexed and has a cassette hub.)

Not everyone would consider my '87 Cannondale SR as "C&V" either, but at least it runs "friction mode" and has a FW.

"sti shifters" - That's an anagram, isn't it?

"Shimano Total Integration"

Have to say the XTR 8 speed on my Trek (not stock) is about as slick as it gets and since I take the bike off road the indexed shifters serve me really well.

The first gen XTR is come classic kit and the XTR cantis are the best I have ever used.

Out of my personal collection, this is my oldest (and only two years newer than myself).

1984 Motobecane Mirage Sport


My newest. All I know is that it's design is 2008 or newer.

Actionbent T1


I have a Columbia and another AMF 3 speed in my garage, but I haven't dated them yet.

My Oldest bike currently owned, I think:



it's a '68, but my PX-10 could be that old.

I'm also not positive what my newest bike is either, but you guys won't like it.

It's either this:



or this:



both are from the 90s.

At one time this was my oldest:

My oldest and newest bikes happen to be the two lightest bikes(by coincidence) that I have.

1983 PSV 10
2006 Trek 5000



From what I see on here, anything that doesn't get picked on in the forum is acceptable. Nlerner's On-One looks more C&V than some of the 'oldest' bikes on here. There's a bunch of Italian stuff here that is from the 90s(even as new as 2010), and nobody barks. IMO if it looks like it was built 'back in the day', then C&V accepts it.

1973 Holdsworth Super Mistral Fastback that was custom made for me when I was 16. It rides like a tank, but will always be my favorite.



2007 Windsor Fens. It has a very smooth ride and is really comfortable.

The oldest and newest in my fleet technically belong to my 12 year old son.

The oldest is this 1972 Peugeot my son got from it's original owner at a garage sale for $10.00.

And yes I know, it needs more drive side pic.



Newest is this Vitus I gave to my son for Christmas last year, no real idea of the year though,

This thread is a great/interesting display of bicycle tastes. I think it's easy to conclude, so far, that people like bikes. Would be interesting to look at the data more in depth later once more people post.

Anyways to contribute...

Oldest: 1980 Raleigh Reliant



Newest: 2010 Planet X SL Pro




hmmm...both white...

1970 Monark folding bike & 2002 Crescent hybrid. C & V could mean "well known & top product" but is more constituted by "hard to come by".
