Good afternoon, was gonna do an introduction thread with photo's attached but apparantly I have to have 5 posts before I am able to attach photo's. Anyway I have just finished building a Trek Y3 (a bike that does not seem to register on this site for some reason) & was looking for a bit of advice. The Y3 was introduced in 1997, my bike is either a 1997 or a 1998. Where should I be posting? I guess here is the right place but if your bikes production run goes over the 1998 cut off is it still 'retro'?

Welcome to the site :)

Get some more posts racked up and get some pictures up in here. Be good to see a Trek Y.

I nearly bought a Y back in 1997, but got a Marin Mount Vision in the end. The Trek was a cooler bike with it's Carbon front triangle, but the URT suspension put me off.

Look forward to the pics :)

Looks nice that, good choice on the colour. I forgot they did Alu ones as well as carbon.

Looks a lot better with the chunky tyres on it. How does it ride?

Not taken her out yet on the Smoke's, but on slicks 'commute to work' no where near as much bob as most people expect!
