Where did Shimano Tourney fit in the lineup?
Whats the story behind Shimano Tourney? I have an old set of tourney brakes from 70s (80s?) I assume they're low end, but I'd like know more.
Another question...Why are pretty much all new wheels black. And I'm not talking carbon ones. I like shiny bits. Nice polished shiny wheels. But everything is black. Is it just fashionable? Or is there some mechanical benefit?
