Evening all

This bike was hanging in a barn for 10 years, the owner wanted to throw it away and I offer to take it off his hands, well this afternoon I thought let’s run some water over it and see what’s she looks like, I was quite surprised and was wondering if anybody can share some history on it?

 

Regards

Bike is from about 1998 or 1999.

 

That was the first sloping top tube (compact frame) that came out.Was a flipping light bike at the time and designed by Mike Burrows.Team ONCE went on to ride the improved version of this frame.

 

Change that stem and you'll feel the front end stiffen up quite a bit.

Think it was the top end TCR 0 that came out with these carbon spoked wheels back then.Four spoked Spynergy’s were also popular.

 

Great retro bike and pretty sure it’s as good or better than some entry carbon frames.
