'89 was single pivot brakes for Shimano 600. Dual pivots didn't come out until '91 or '92 I think. So if the components are all original it puts the bike in the '91-93 range as anything beyond that would have STI shifters.
Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
Buy it. I had a Battaglin made from Columbus Cromor tubing and it provided an excellent ride, I would have loved to have one in SLX.
I have a TSD Cromor model. Great rider!!! An SLX model would be the icing on the cake.
The one pictured might be just prior to the TSD years. Check the underside of the downtube for a TSD sticker.
Hey jet - do you find the your Battaglin and your Ciocc ride almost identically?
