What an awesome, clean bike 8)!
And a very well documented and visually supported thread: I like :D
I love the purple satin finish, that is spectacular in all its simplicity.
Will you be riding this beauty, or not..?

Thanks for the kind words Double-E-F.
As my Rocky Mountain Cirrus, I'll definitely ride this bike. This is what I meant in my last post where I wrote that I have spare onZa H.O. pedals and Panaracer Dart/Smoke Classic tires.
I won't take the risk to ride the Peugeot with 26-year old Hutchinson tires.
And I don't have enough MTB shoes to install all the clipping system of the golden 90s; only one pair in working order ATM, in fact. For more than a quarter of a century, I'm riding onZa H.O. pedals, even on my "modern" '09 Cannondale Rize Carbon 2!
I'm just worried about the frame size; I normally ride 20" frames. But since my Rize is also a medium size (though with a totally different geometry) and is fine by me, the Peugeot might do the trick too. The seatpost is however at its max extent whereas additional 1.5-2cm would have been perfect.
Oh and I'm better avoiding snowy/rainy/muddy conditions with my vintage MTBs. So probably not before this spring/summer. Stay tuned!

Excellent. I have had one of the Team Line models with carbon lugs. Very nice, but your top of the line bike is the one we all want of course :)

Thanks Elev12k. Wow, I've never seen a TL with carbon lugs; with carbon tubes glued to aluminum lugs, yes, but with carbon lugs, never. Do you remember the exact model? Documentation on the Team Line range is... special, with specs not on par with photos (like my TL 2000), models sold with a different name than in the catalogue (TL 2200R commercially available as TL 4000; not to be confused with a later TL 4000 built on the FS Sintesi Bromont frame), or models not in any catalogue (such as TL 850).

The carbon lug models were the T6000A and T6000C. I had a T6000A in the color bodeaux carbone. View them under the link (1995) or in the Catalog Archive (1998 catalog).

Wow, rare beast that you have had. I've never seen one of those in the wild.
Funnily enough, my TL 2000 that was the top of the range in 1993 is the entry model in 1995 (equivalent to the T2000M). Times are changing...

It was a very nice bike, but too small for me. Mine had the aluminium tubing in the main triangle and was specced with the base A la carte option: STX RC. It is now in the Mountainbike Museum in NL.

I now do have a Peugeot Europe Express (Reynolds 531 All-Terrain) that is my size.
