More Info:
Built by Dave Tiemeyer in 1997 for the US Cycling Team and ridden by Christian Vande Velde to "some world cups" and "a few national titles on that bad boy". "The photos show a track bike that proves to be authentic from that era with wider section tubes, no longer UCI legal, and the distinctive "fractal" paint job. The serial number indicates that it was the 68th frame built for USA Cycling in 1997. As previously noted, I was busy!... The SB-1 aluminum superbikes from the 1995-1996 winter season had yet another deeper airfoil with a distinctive wheel fairing that extended lower than the bottom bracket. The SB-2 were the carbon superbikes from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Still, what you have was known to us as the SB-3 superbike and was an attempt at making an economical, practical, but super fast racing bike. I believe it met our goals at a time when GT Bicycles was in the process of being sold off to Schwinn... I will admit that seatpost system was less than robust and very difficult to adjust. Many people have come to me asking for spare seatpost parts, so it is good to see that yours is intact... It is always gratifying to learn that my "babies" have a life of their own after they leave the shop." - Dave Tiemeyer
