Two of my roadies

Ok here is my first steelie 1995 Peugeot Prestige in Reynolds 708 classic was equiped before with ultegra 6400/dura ace7400, original 753 fork broke during an accident I had where I broke my left knee. Reequiped it later with duraace 7700 (crank, bottom bracket and lever shifters) and for the rest ultegra 6500. I have two pairs of wheels for it, a cosmic equipe from 1997 and ksyrium from 2002. Also changed the fork by a time one and changed the stem for a ritchey. The bike has some very minor paint sratches and weights with the whole equipment near 9 kilos. It rides very comfortably and very surely. Haven't ridden it during quite some time.








Second steelie is a rare 1990/1991 l'équipe Z Reynolds 753 custom made bike by Cinelli. Why Cinelli, because on the bottom bracket there is a cinelli logo. It was given to me by a former racer of the Team l'équipe Z. The wheels on this bike are different, it is equiped with campy record 14 speed transmission including the delta brakes except of the front derailleur which is a miche. It has an aluminium vitus fork, original camp head set, 3ttt bar and stem. I am thinking of having mavic cxp 21 installed on this bike alongwith new tires. It rides fast and very nervously

Both look like very nice bikes. I used to think the late 80's were the sweet spot in C &V in terms of bang for the buck, but the early 90's pre- brifter bikes are becoming very appealing to me lately.

That Raleigh badged pro bike is a beauty but it wasn't made by Cinelli , though it uses a cinelli bottom bracket.
Andre Armel in association with Maxi Sport made these in the Parisian suburbs.

Of the two, the Raleigh appeals better to my admittedly traditional tastes.

Many people have come to this forum with Cinelli BB shells. They sold them widely and are found on many bikes.

Thanks for the information Dave, I didn't know that.

Both very cool. Love the paintjob on the Raleigh, and I've never even heard of Reynolds 708!

It is a very good tubing, it was also used by some french artisans framebuilders like Cycles Follis and Pilorget, I remember that American Framebuilders like Richard Sachs and Waterford used it as well.

Beautiful bikes! I'm potentially looking into getting some Mavic Cosmics for a Vitus bike i just purchased (the blue anodizing would match well), I'm just wondering if you know if those were only sold as tubulars or clinchers? Also I'm assuming the spacing was 126mm?

Thanks.

Apologize to reply with such a huge delay, mine were clinchers, but I know that the Cosmic pro back in 1997-1998 was available in clinchers and tubulars
