    Mystery and unidentified parts thread

    Litespeed Sewanee restomod

    Awesome - thank you! Do you know what the headtube logo signified? Or was it just that anything with the Once paint job had that detail too?

    Help identifying a TCR

    Hi guys, I picked up a Giant TCR a few days ago and am trying to figure out what year it is. Photos below, with key details by my reckoning being an integrated double seatpost clamp, seat tube at the clamp machined with 4 notches to hold a rubber weather-proofing sleeve, seat tube forming to...

    1994 GT Tequesta gravel build

    Built up with Ultegra shifters, LX mech, Avid Arch Rival brakes, and a Kona gravel bar. Fork is a GT chromo off another bike. Cassette is an Aliexpress 9 speed so it'll be interesting to see how that goes.
