    Susan DeMattei's Olympic Bike (with final photos)

    I was contacted by a volunteer member of the US Cycling Hall of Fame in Davis, CA seeking assistance with rebuilding the bike that Susan DeMattei used to win the bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Susan and her husband Dave Wiens donated what they had left of the bike to the Hall of Fame in hopes that it would be put on display. Because of budget constraints, the HOF is not able to purchase the correct vintage parts to complete this project, so the idea came about to seek parts donations from the VRC community of otherwise useless parts. In return, people that donate will receive a small tax deduction and the knowledge that their cast-offs now grace Susan's bike on display at the museum.

    I have agreed to help coordinate the parts selection so that the right pieces and only as many as necessary are provided to the HOF. Parts will be received directly by the HOF and I can provide the address and contact information to those that are donating. Another volunteer, that is the general manager of the UC Davis Bike Shop, has agreed to assemble the bike.

    In this thread people should post photos of potential parts they have that might be appropriate. Also, if people have better photos showing the bike, please contribute those too. I have compiled a detailed list of parts that are still required and I have photos of some specific pieces needed. If people have specific concerns, please contact me with a PM or through my website, which is found at the bottom of this post. The HOF website is at: United States Bicycling Hall of Fame

    Come on VRC, let's show some love for a historic mountain bike and a great rider!

    I may actually have the wheels. Came with the little goat, I think. What sort of condition are we talking about?

    Edit: and thanks, DC! What a cool like thing we can do as a community!

    Very cool on the wheels GOB. Post a photo if you can. If they look respectable that's good, and if they have genuine Georgia mud that's even better.

    Very nice Chef. From what I can tell, the shifters are clear grey plastic and have yellow graphics that say ESP on them. That would mean a SRAM 1:1 actuation ratio not compatible with Shimano, and yet one photo clearly shows an XTR derailleur. Better info is really needed here.

    Incidentally, Paola Pezzo was racing the event with an M952 group with V-brakes.

    Quite possibly there is a connection. The photo I posted is from a recent eBay auction which I should have bid on. So they did exist commercially.

    OK, I will let you know.

    Hoping this project gets off the ground. Weins said they might have a few (very few) parts, but didn't fully appreciate the significance of the bike at the time.

    I may have The Crossmax's. I sold a set to my neighbor and will see if he still has them.
    They may be 97's but I will get a photo to you in the next 24hr.

    Hi All,
    Just want to say "Thanks" from everyone at the US Bicycling Hall of Fame for your help in locating the vintage parts to restore Susan's Olympic bike. Dave Wiens gave us everything he could find (maybe even a few parts that weren't period-correct), and Susan was really excited about hearing that we were trying to get the bike restored.

    This is such a cool project and it will be great to get such an important piece of MTB history preserved for the future. FYI - In addition to this being tax-deductible as mentioned by DoubleCentury in the original post, we'll also make sure the DeMattei exhibit lists the names of everyone that contributes parts to the project.

    Thanks again!

    Found one shifter so far, still digging. Believe they are of the X900 variety.

    You know, this might be something to cross-post into some of the other forums, to reach those long time mountain bikers who don't frequent the VRC forum but may have the parts that are needed. Expand the gene pool, so to speak....

    I have some X-rays, but with black grips. I'll get a pic later today. I'm also curious about how she was using those with a Shimano derailleur. Did you find anything more about that setup?

    As I recall, there was not any problems with X-ray shifters and Shimano deraileurs. In '96, what choice did she have? SRAM was years away from a grouppo.

    Great Project, I attended this race in Atlanta, hot as hell, water sold out inside the venue. I have an Susan, autographed copy of the event poster, with my used tickets hanging above the couch. Looking forward to seeing the completed bike.

    I've used X-Rays with Shimano before, but I don't know about the ESP part. Maybe they just put the ESP decal on a Shimano compatible X-Ray for marketing purposes.

    Does anyone know Scott Stewart, who was apparently here mechanic at the time?

    It's been so long since I used them, I forgot which bike they were on. That was pre-ESP, I was running mine with Shimano as well.

    I had some NOS Dia Compe PC-800 Levers in my hand the other day at the LBS but tossed them back in the lever bin and kept digging. I will try to find them again when I go in to clear my tab/start another one on Saturday.

    Very cool, as I don't think those are very common. Maybe more got imported up north over the border.

    I checked both bins and found 2 sets of levers that were similar but not 800s. 7s, and another set with dial adjuster that were missing the labels.

    Depending on how pristine you want this bike to look, I have a set of cosmetically-challenged M737 pedals I could donate.

    I was at a friends house the other day and he has (what we both think) a set of the first gen mavic crossmax's, I think they had the ceramic sides?
    He said that he would donate them if you wanted but they are fairly beat, I can get pics if there's interest.

    Syklystt, that is some really good stuff! If those cranks can be etched off and the outside surfaces polished up, they might look really good. Yes, the original CrossMax should have ceramic braking surfaces. I think without wheels, this project won't get off the ground so we'll take what we can get at this point. Let me know and I can give you the proper contact info.

    Thanks for getting photos of the wheels! These would appear to be a newer version of CrossMax with alloy spokes. The rims should be a square box section with a ceramic coating. Here are the wheels we're looking for,

    Whenever you have time to get to those cranks would be great! Still lots of parts missing from this build.

    Wow syklystt, that's very generous of you. I will send you a PM with the shipping details.

    mrjustin007, sorry I missed your stem in the process of replying about the wheelset. I think 130 mm might be a tad long for someone of Susan's stature. Thank you for looking!

    DC,

    I have a M910 rear that's in ok shape. Not sure if it's a mid cage, but it measures about 67mm between the jockey pins.

    I have 3 red alloy chain ring bolts (guessing the other two bit the dust at some point)


    I'll post pics when I get to computer.

    True, but it's not going to look right if the front end is all stretched out on a small frame. I should probably have listed the stem at 110 mm and will go ahead and change that.

    The derailleur is perfect! Those 910's weren't out for very long before M950 took over.

    I have chainring bolts that are similarly faded in red. They may be raceface though if you're interested? I can't believe that I don't have anything else on that list.

    So i got the cranks out to de-anno them and upon verification....they are 94 BCD.
    I am still going to strip them and clean them up in case no others pop up.
    The spider is removable so that is a choice too (right!...if i could just 3d print aluminum)...I can supply some chain rings with them too if they are used (since the XTR's wont fit).

    Bummer! I'm glad you noticed that. OK, back on the list it goes and we can work something out if nothing else shows up.

    I will be going to a small swap meet next weekend and will try and buy appropriate parts if they are there.

    The listing does not match the pg1 picture, more milling on the arm on the ones for sale, don't know if the pg1 pic are the cranks, or just an example of the pics.

    DC is the king of detail so we wait upon his pronouncement.

    Good parts finding folks! There were a couple of variations of this crank, and in fact I would say that the ones with milled holes posted by syklystt may have actually been those sold by Titus.

    It is really hard to tell from the photos of Susan on the bike at the Olympics what variation of the crank she was using that day. What I was able to determine is that DBR was on AC cranks earlier that season, which is consistent with this photo.

    Susan DeMattei's Olympic Bike (with final photos)-susan2.jpg

    Cadel Evans was on DBR that year, and there is video that shows him riding the AC crank. Later on he is shown with with M950 cranks.

    So, yes I would say that the cranks at Recyclery are the "proper" cranks as best as we can tell for Susan's bike.

    Ok
    I bought the cranks from Recyclery.
    I chose " Local pick up" as I didn't know where they need to go but didn't want to risk having them sold in the interim.

    Email me a shipping address unless someone is kind enough to pick them up and mail them out.

    Thanks

    Hey DoubleCentury,

    Put sbsbiker and me down for the cranks as listed in the Recyclery ad above.

    You'll need to contact them about shipping them to wherever they need to go or someone will need to pick them up. Didn't make sense to ship them to the East coast only to have to ship them back.

    Way to go team! Very generous of you however this plays out. CCMDoc, I can supply you the address if you want to have them shipped directly. Also likely that the seller will be at the local swap here next Sunday and I can include it in other parts that I will ship to the HOF.

    Cool!
    Whatever is easiest. If the seller can simply hand them to you to be shipped as part of a larger collection that would make most sense.
    Stay well

    cool deal....my cranks were sold as Titus, but really they are about the same (minor differances)..glad the proper set was sorted.
    Did the grip shift get sorted also? Does andybody know about that decal/logo?
    It looks like a sticker that can easily be added to a shifter unit.

    That's good to know that those cranks were in fact Titus.

    We should have shifters on the way, but we could still use some grips in red to dress them up.

    I'm guessing he'll be there for your local swap next weekend, but if you don't connect with him let me know and I'll run over to his place and pick them up. He is not far from me.

    I have a slightly used set of PC800's if you still need levers. The black on the bodies is scratched a little bit. The levers are unscratched. My tablet won't read my camera card otherwise I would send a picture. I'll try to get at the card another way tomorrow if that would help. If you're OK with a little bit used give me an address and they are on the way.

    The levers look better in real life than in the pictures. The black is not spotted and the scratched areas are not as noticible. The worst is the front of the left lever and a little paint and you would not see it. Same for the marks on the clamp. It looks like someone must have stood the bike upside down on a hard surface. They are not NOS by any stretch so if they won't work for you no worries. Steve

    Hey that's great! In all the years, I've never seen any of these in person, so I have to think they are pretty rare. Let's go ahead and use them, and maybe someone can touch them up a bit at the HOF. PM sent with the contact info.

    I believe we did thanks to Chefmiguel.

    I will update the list soon. I am contributing an XTR cogset and the Controltech stem. Still searching for the barends and Dia Compe brakes.

    I just test fit the AC cranks I have here on a 122 spindle, and that should work great. I assume it is a 68 mm shell, correct?
