Trek Y-11 Mountain Bike - OCLV Carbon Frame
A blast from the bast! I bought this new in 96 or 97 from Off the Edge in Ainslie (if you have a long memory).
I have way too many bikes in the garage and I stopped riding this one regularly about 3 years ago - although I did ride it in "Retro Racer" class in 2013 Kowalski Classic. It's had a good life!
It's condition reflects 15+ years of use but the most visual (and annoying to me damage) are the scratches on the frame. I have tried to show them in the photos. Obviously a few nicks and scratches are just from regular use but the major scratches are from the pedal of another bike that moved in a trailer. It's worn through the "top clear coat" but not physically damaged the frame. If you are handy with sandpaper and and can of clear coat you could possibly do something about it.
You can do an search on the web and check the 96/96 specs for a Y-11 noting all the following changes.
Forks - I put on Manitou Stroker FS Ti 80mm forks (this used to be a lot of travel). I still have the original yellow RockShox Quadra 21Rs that will go with the bike. The Quadra elastomers perished so I put in a Kronos spring conversion but it is recommended that you replace the plastic fork tops with metals ones for strength (mine are still plastic) and the ones I have found on ebay have been US sellers who won't ship to Oz.
Wheels - AlexRims ACE-17 with Joytech hubs Nothing special. Not perfectly true but ridable. They came off a more recent GT from memory. Original bent / buckled over the years - not that would have much wall left anyway.
Tyres - I think the bike came with Panaracer Darts from memory which I hated. A Tioga Extreme XC front and Tioga Factory XC rear are on now.
Brakes - Shimano XTR
Controls - Shimano XT
Gears etc - Cranks and front shifter are stock Shimano LX. The rear is also a Shimano LX. I can't remember what was the stock derailleur as I have gone through a couple. The front chain rings are original, but the cluster and chain have been replaced as worn over the years. Just assume it all needs replacing and then you won't be disappointed!
And the crappiest bit of the whole bike is the Huffy seat and generic seat post thanks to someone who thought the standard Trek stuff would look better on their bike :(
The bike is located on the southside on Canberra. Pickup only. Questions or more photos let me know.
*** Just to clarify. The big white smudge looking marks on the frame (that follows the line of the frame) are camera flash. I'll take a non-flash photo during the day. ***
