  • That's truly a shame. I binned the 92 (red) frameset after I ripped the seat tube (in an attempt to wrench out the stuck seatpost...).

  • Update (April 6th 2021).

    My intention was to have this collection finished by March 1st but I failed (unforseen non-bike expenses and Covid-troubles). But delay is not cancellation and after all, this anniversary can last 365 days.

    And there's some good news too! On Retrobike I was following the thread of someone building a Look Mi90 (the more expensive "brother" of my Mi80). When he took the (very hard) decision to cancel the build and donate the frame to a fellow RB-forum'er, I sacrificed myself. The frameset arrived today and it LOOKs fantastic. Thinking of going era correct on this one (not entailing excessive costs).

    From the 1991 Look Catalog: the MI 80 and Mi 90 (steel version; there also was a carbon version)

  • Very much here for this thread, loving it so far

  • Scott Windriver colours are

    Looking forward to seeing the PR6000 build

  • Thanks, @Matisse.

    @EstelleGetty : yes, that PR6000 is my unicorn but on the other hand it gives me headaches. You can follow the thread here

  • Absolutely lovely!

  • Thanks! Need to mount a set of gear cables and the Mi90 is ready to roll.

    Edit. Finished the Mi 90. Went for a period correct build: Shimano XT 7 speed groupset, Ritchey Logic brakes and levers, Ritchey Vantage Expert rims, Gripshift SRT 500.

  • Thanks to @snoops I'm now the owner of a Look MI 80R frame, and your thread is the perfect inspiration!
    Started looking in my parts bin, found a couple of bits that could work, nothing as period correct as what you've done, but maybe OK as a start so I can ride the bike before the winter...
