Great thread, I humbly submit my old SystemSix.
Some more 2008 supersix scrapage
These were my first race bikes, carbon frame, alloy fork, quill stem, downtube shifters and 8 speed 105. I broke 2 of them.
Might not be enough carbon to qualify, but I like it a lot.
This 1995 Trek 5500 was my second roadbike I bought around 2008, it came with a full 7410 group and second pair of wheels in the form 0f Aerospokes, the old guy I bought it off was totally clueless. Think I bought it for €350, sold the spokes for about €200 when people still thought they were peak HH.
It lived on to be my winter bike for a couple years, had risers at some point but this was it's final stage as ride around town bike and fast commuter. Until it got stolen. :(
Wish I had pics of the various stages.
Finding it hard to believe, but my spesh qualifies in the >10 year category, and everything is period correct as nothings been changed beyond consumables!
Terrible old photo but my 2003 Once TCR was mint to ride.
So many lovely bikes! The old Looks and the Kestrel are all top.
Here's my 2008 Soloist Carbon, still going strong. :D
Another classic - https://www.pedalroom.com/bike/colnago-extreme-power-56cm-64kg-20167
I there a build thread on that Roberts in the back ground anywhere?
It was mine - now sold - sale thread with info - https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/350609/ and project thread - https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/336717/
Thanks. Beautiful bike.
formerly mat’s system six now with silly wheels and now that i look at them from the side, quite strange hood positioning.
Lovely stuff. I find taking a pic from lower down makes hood and bar position look a bit odd.
Better than a modern build in my eyes!! Good job 👌🏻
I'm more intrigued by the shifters seemingly being mounted over the bar tape.
Cool bike though!
oh yeah i’m a sucker for cotton bar tape that’s incredibly worn in so it’s actually just easier to slide the shifters over the top
Love a older carbon. Here's my 2011 Trek madone .4.7 .
Another Favorite. My mates Look kg 96
And his scott CR1.
My old Dolan, god I hated that bike! But full carbon with 105 for under £200… (plus wheels)
