I traded a Yo Eddy for a Bontrager just like the one posted above. Ended up trading the Bontrager to a friend in exchange for him paying some race entries for me. Now I'm without a Bontrager, or a Fat, but I did win those races (meh)

The 2 bikes I raced this past season;

Both of my bikes may have had full Red but only one of them was Purple....

I traded my old Supertouch frame (like from '99) to my chiropractor. Interestingly enough he got hit by a truck while riding it. I always Knew chiropracty was a sham...

Here's some build shots of the pair I used this winter, I'm currently in the middle of stripping them down and boxing them up for the summer.
Not at all retro I know but I am planning on re-building my very first cross bike in original spec when I get time.

Another Empella owner here, the photo was taken before I got it! It now has matching cross tyres! I will take some new pics when I find the time.

Loving some of the steel stuff on here. Almost a timeless look to them, cross bikes. You expect slimmer tubes and horizontal top tubes so even the older stuff on here looks current.

Presently in half a mind about stripping the rarely used Bianchi in the shed and hanging the bits on a crosser that might see a bit more action.
