Hi all, just joined the retrobike forum, more for mtb than road but am thinking that my roadbikes are knocking on a bit now too: '98 Giant TCR tri in anodized purple/blue & '98 (I think) Lemond Zurich 853 bought as frameset & fitted with 8 speed Ultegra. Both have quill stems so that's pretty retro! Partner has '98 Cannondale Multisport 900 650c, also with quill stem. They all have carbon forks though, not so retro.

I'd count anything over 10 years as getting a bit retro round the edges...

threaded headset
pointy top ergopowers
8 speed
square taper chainset
non-anatomic drop bars
steel ;-)

Over 10 years old works for me but also if they don't make it anymore is quite good as well !
