    Now that I have two bikes with DT's (Prelude and Circuit), that i ride constantly, I actually prefer the friction to indexed, can't stand that clicking, plus much better shifting when climbing ( i still try to plan ahead, but sometimes get stuck shifting on a hill), I just love the ride of the vintage steel tube bikes, glad i started looking at C&V forum awhile back...i'm hooked!!

    Here's the 89 Prelude I picked up last week for my wife. I haven't done anything to it yet, but will probably start working on it next week.

    I want to sneak in here and post a picture of Bill's Prologue before he does. I lust after that bike. In lieu of doing that

    Anyway, here's my dad's Tempo. It was upgraded to all RSX100 when he bought it in 85. I ride this bike every chance I get.

    Yes the stem is fugly, here it is in operation

    Here it is in operation, "vintage" shot:


    And here's my Circuit, waiting to go off to the framebuilder's to replace a broken drop-out:

    And a picture of it in service

    Yes to the Peloton, especially an 85 Clearly you should replace the Tempo with one haha

    Yeah, I bought it for the Brooks basically. It is a great riding bike, just too tall. It's going to it's new home in Florida next week. I sold it last night.

    Only looked through a few pages so far, but I like what I see!
    Here is how I bought my circuit about 2 years ago..


    Recently updated as of about a week ago. Still needs a few odds and ends..
    Dura ace 9spd get up.

    The stem/headset area looks really good together.

    I just found a 1986 Prelude in my dad's attic. I am impressed by all the bike on here. I have to post a picture of mine.

    Hope this link works. I would love to resto-mod this thing. I just bought two panaracer tires in the original size 27 x 1 from nashbar for cheap. I like how everyone has modern wheel sets. The friction downtube shifters are difficult to work while riding next to car traffic. Do you guys have any suggestions for changing the shifters to barends or on the brakehandles like on the black Prelude above^^^? Thanks I thinking of just switching the seat, griptape for now. Down the road 700c rims, crankset, derailers.....if I ever get the money!

    Nice looking original bike... i think i would put some serious miles on it before i went crazy on the mods... You will get used to those DT shifters, just takes some practice... i LOVE the DT shifters on my bikes...I generally do all my shifting with my left hand keeping control with the right (i am right handed)... Here's an improvement i made to mine just recently, these brake levers are less than $20 and improved comfort 100%

    Apparently we need a 1987-Circuits-with-updated-components thread!

    Scored on CL for $120 a couple years back, bone stock and in great shape.IMG_4204.jpg
    How I received it

    Cleaned it up, added bottle cages and new wrap. redid all the greasy parts of course
    And voila!



    But for riding it as regularly as I do, my sitter needed a familiar saddle, and I have never been in love with dt shifters, so I bought a NOS Colnago, raped it for parts, and resold the frame (it was DA on a colnago, just not right) and have a full DA 7700 group (ok, 105 fd), thomson elite post, etc.



    don't even pretend ya'll aren't jealous of my couch haha

    61cm. Thanks! I'm very proud of it, I think it is the best looking bike I've built up, and God knows there have been enough pass through these hands. I have a white ss/fg Madison with similar decals. Now I just gotta locate a Voyageur SP to have painted red and I'll have a full Schwinn road stable of the era

    This Schwinn got me back into biking. A friend had it sitting in his storage room. His girlfriend had bought it at a garage sale years ago for $10. She rode it for a while, but thought it to be somewhat dangerous having to jump off each time she had to stop.

    I slowly have been updating it for my commute to work.

    This is how I got it:
    Before driver side.jpg

    I have made the following changes:
    - 700 Mavics with DA hubs / 7 speed cassette
    - Cinelli bars and stem
    - longer no-name seat post
    - long reach Tektro brakes
    - 600 brake calipers
    - Brooks Swift saddle

    I'm not done yet, but this is what it looks like now:

    Yes, the Traveler is not Columbus tubing, but I love the taiwanese frame.
