Tangerine 585

Don't have a photo, however the LBS has a couple in stock and I do have to admit that the color does not look bad. I prefer the cleaner, simpler color of the white, however the tangerine is different. It is not a bright color and has more of a darker, metallic finish to it.

Here is mine that i now have 95% built. Complete pic to follow.
Hey Bikapelli, is that the 57cm frame that was up in the classifieds a while back offered as a trade for a similar sized Moots? It looks like the same photo. (I was giving it quite a bit of thought once I came across that ad, as I have the Vamoots and have been eyeing the 585).

Edit: Clarity

The 2006 Tangerine 585....??

hi guys...i am new to carbon road bikes (i have been riding on steel and older shimano components forever). i just bought an unused '06 tangerine 585/campy 10sp and i have a couple of questions for you all that have had yours for a while now.


  • first, is there a good manual available on carbon fiber bike maintainance? I am just getting my feet wet with it and understand torque is very specific, bought a torque wrench for adjustments, but a comprehensive manual would be valuable.

    is our '06 585 the exact same bike as the white/black ones only with different paint? friends seem to think otherwise, but i think it is.

    i have 06 campy record except for the hubs and the wheels are velomax with easton clinchers. i want a different wheelset to use on my trainer...any recommendations? i am used to tubulars and have been told these clinchers will wear out way fast (like any tire) on the trainer.

    finally what kind of maintainance problems or notables have you experienced with this bike?

many thanks...i know i'm a complete newbie in this world...
