First off, i'm a clyde. 6'4" 275, but I've lost 52# in the last 9 months. I have a Univega mtb that is serving well as the fitness and walking trail mount. Now I'm getting the idea of riding half centurys metrics and centuries. I'm thinking a proper road bike would be a benefit. I love the 80-90's vintage bikes and was wondering what brands to look for? Did anyone make a 26" road bike?
Right now I'm watching out for steel frames like Bianchi, Raliegh, and older Treks. What were the other Japanese bikes?
