p.s. God's bike has an XA.
It's for an early 80s bike, so the 101 a little out of period. At the time I bought it the 1R was the hot setup, which is what I have now. After riding another bike with a 1cm longer toptube and 1cm longer stem I have come to realize (after 25 years!) that the cockpit on the derosa is too short for me
The XA is sweet but I didn't find any of those floating in the bay
I think the XA came out shortly after I bought the bike
I'm not sure why I care about period correctness. The bike has an ergo 9 speed drivetrain on it now anyway. Sometimes I think about putting the SR gruppo back on but I guess I've gotten lazy and like my indexed shifting
