    Your link doesn't work but I found the bike anyway. It appears to be made of Reynolds 531 steel. Nice looking bike for $140.00

    The bar end shifters were originally designed so that sprinters could change gears while in the drops. But, the design quickly found favor in with the touring bikes.

    Laterally stiff yet vertically compliant.
