    Great bike! And rare! Seems like I recall that bike spec'ed with the Browning Transmission??

    Thanks y'all! It's technically a 1987. However, the specs for the 1988 Team are more applicable which is where the Browning comes in (not on mine). I bought it very recently and most of it appears stock. All XT with Specialized's GX26 rims. The rims were pretty beat and the previous dude ran it with the hubs too loose (pedals too). I swapped in some practically brand new Araya RM20s with some high flange Suzue hubs. I should get some better pics up soon.

    I can't seem to find an accurate number of frames that Dave Tesch produced for Specialized but there weren't that many. Coincidentally, I have and used to race on a Specialized Team Allez that Tesch made, same paint job. Absolutely amazing bikes.

    Yeah if only I was as fast as I used to be...
    Those bits of trails, there are few more techy bits and drops ahead, were part of the trails that we "weren't supposed to ride" 20 years ago, only moved back to the area a few months ago, now they are just part of the trail network.

    After 30" of snow in the past week and a half made my home trails too muddy to ride, I had to go off in search of dry trails. Search successful.

    Palos Hills (15 miles SW of Chicago IL) summer of '99. You can't really tell from the photos, but this trail network used to be among the best in the country, a hidden gem in the midwest. I haven't ridden there in 10 years so I'm not sure what it's like now, but we got our use out of the 40 or so miles of trails there in the 90's.

    Me on my '93 Bontrager (that I still have), the backpack was for my camera gear, not sure why I didn't take it off for the photo. Oh to be that skinny again...


    My friend Graham on his '96 Bontrager, he was my main off road riding partner back in the day (he's now an emergency room doctor in Eugene OR).


    Heather, another good friend who I rode with a ton back then.


    Me again, negotiating some roots on a fairly steep downhill.

    Alki to Lincoln Park with my wife.

    Because some times you just need to do a no helmet, no gloves, stop for lunch type of ride. Good times:

    Yep. Looks like a killer stretch of bike path there.

    I also like the no helmet, no lycra, lazy rides in the mountains.

    My wife is more athletic than I will ever be, but in the several years together, she has been on exactly one dirt trail ride. That was one too many. She decided right away that trails without gravel or pavement were for hiking, which is ok and we do quite often.

    No problem for an old bike like this. Probably the best technical climbing bike I've been on, with the front end going exactly where you want even when the wheel is barely touching the ground.

    no, but what are the chances?? I rode a bike I haven't ridden in years and planned on snapping a couple pics. Before I could post pics someone dredges up that 4 year old thread!

    Campy stuff is solid, over-built, heavy, pretty, and nicely made, but the shifting is a little less than refined. I had to race with this stuff in 91 and I hated it then. :)

    I got an old craigslist find up and running this week. It had been hanging in my garage with a stuck seat post and some missing parts for a couple of years. While not a show piece, its a mostly period correct rider that is a lot of fun. It came from a shop at which I worked back in the late 80's and I may have even sold it when it was brand new.

    That looks fun and nostalgic for you. What did you use to get the seatpost loose?

    Original Paint
    The paint is original. Of all the vintage bikes I've ridden, this is the one that gets the most
    comments on the trail. At least one person, sometimes several will say, "Sweet ride." Yesterday
    it was three separate college women and an 8 year old kid, all of whom were born after this bike
    was built. Regardless, it really is amazing how well this bike handles.
