I have a 1986 annual and it shows the La Vie Clair team using Hinault badged steel frames, alluminum glued frames (Allen/Vitus?) with both Hinault and LOOK badging and white LOOK badged steel frames. T

The aluminum glued frames are actually painted CF, and they were made by TVT.

As far as I know the Hinault badged steel and CF bikes were 1985 team bikes. They may still have been in use in early 1985, or some of the photos in your annual are from the previous year. I guess the jeresys would tell the tale. I think 1985 they were "la Vie Claire" and in 1986 they were "Look-Wonder." (I think Taipie owned all 3 companies).

hey were all using Campagnolo C-Record with the Cobalto brakes. There are picts of Hinault and Hampsten using steel "funney" bikes for time trials at the Tour -I would think they used those for the flat TT stages and the alluminum conventional frames for the hilley TTs.
