Columbus 'GL' tubed frame + Scott Drop Ins + Deltas + shoes with laces + shiny bar ribbon + downtube shifters = classic

nie bikes .

a friend of mine has one of those TVT . he bought it from the team Z at the end of the season . he had to have one of the less known rider bike because of his size . Before they sent him the bike , it was sent back to the factory to be re glued and checked over . i think he got a certificate to prove it .

my neighbour has a Liberia , with full mavic equipment bike from the RMO team ( Charly Mottet ) .

it was quite normal for all teams to sell the bikes at end of the season . not sure if it is still the case .

Sounds cool....pics :D

Be interesting to know if the big continental pro teams do still have big sell offs. Have seen in the past a couple fo smaller UK teams selling bikes.

i ll try to get pics next time i am in france .

a former rider agent used to be a local , hence the opportunity to buy those bikes . once watched a tdf stage in the RMO team bus .

it was pretty cool as a 14 year old .
