This is my recently acquired 1997 Trek Y-33.

I have all of the original parts. It needed a longer seat post so I substituted a Bontrager RXL carbon model. New tyres are Maxis TT Exception 2.0 front and rear. Pedals shown are Trek Composite Demos.

The carbon frame is in exceptional condition as the original owner had it set up with 1.5 street tyres, so rarely took it off the asphalt. I've applied helicopter tape to areas that might be exposed to rock and gravel chipping.

Original Specs:
Weight 24.5
Sizes Large 19 inch
Nude carbon
Frame Construction Monocoque
Frame Tubing Material OCLV carbon fiber/6061 T6 aluminum swingarm
Fork Brand & Model Rock Shox Judy SL
Fork Material Magnesium, triple-clamp crown
Rear Shock Stratos Strata Pro, 1.75" travel

Components
Component Group Shimano Deore XT
Brakeset Shimano Deore XT V-Brake brakes, Shimano Deore XT levers
Shift Levers Shimano Deore XT RapidFire SL
Front Derailleur Shimano Deore XT top-swing, top-pull/clamp-on 35.0 mm
Rear Derailleur Shimano Deore XT SGS
Crankset Shimano Deore XT, 22/32/42 teeth
Pedals Shimano PD-M747 SPD clipless
Bottom Bracket Shimano BB-UN92, 113 mm spindle
BB Shell Width 73mm English
Rear Cogs 8-speed, 11 - 30 teeth
Chain Shimano CN-IG90, 1/2 x 3/32"
Seatpost Bontrager Race Lite, 27.2 mm diameter
Saddle Selle San Marco Tecno Dynamica
Handlebar Bontrager Race Lite
Handlebar Extensions System OCLV carbon fiber
Handlebar Stem Bontrager aluminum
Headset 1 1/8" threadless Tange-Seiki DX-2

Wheels
Hubs Front: System 3 suspension, Rear: Shimano Deore XT
Rims Matrix Swami, 32-hole
Tires Front: 26 x 1.90" Continental Navigator Pro kevlar, Rear: 26 x 2.00" Continental Traction Pro kevlar
Spoke Brand DT Competition stainless steel, 2.0mm double butted
Spoke Nipples Alloy nipples

Cool and unusual bike. I would change the pedals and get a silver or black stem. I would also get rid of the bar ends and might get another bar. Maybe a riser bar?

Thanks.

My intention is to keep the bike as original as possible. The original aluminum seat post was cut to the point at which it was unsafe. The Bontrager (Trek) carbon post seemed a reasonable temporary substitute. The pedals are temporary demo pedals. i don't ride SPDs so will probably install platforms of that period.

This bike may be ridden by "guests". Not my main ride. Collectors bike.....maybe for Tweed rides etc.

The SPDs that were on the bike are the originals. They are old school....don't rotate....daunting for the un-initiated "guest".
