You know, the old "seatmast" Spesh FSRs, Trek Y-Frames, Orange Sub 5s, Cannondale Jekylls, SC Superlights and Bullits etc? The bikes I lusted after as a poor student in the late 90s/ early 00s?
Almost never see them ridden - they are unlikely to be SSed, commuterised or freecycled and the numbers falling into retrobiker hands must be minimal. Presumably very few actually end up broken, so what other possibilities are there?
Scrapped or gathering dust in a shed somewhere?
