    I also noticed an dramatic increase in speed, Not just top speed but my average speed. Try readjusting your seat. Not just the height but the tilt. Areo bars put you in a dramatically different position. I also recommend a helmet mirror if you using Areo Bars.

    as I had never used drop bars in the winter time before.
    Do the people that are participating in and winning cyclocross races on a Tricross know it's not really a cyclocross bike?
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    Snagged this about half an hour ago and it will be mine until I find it a new home... I have to avoid getting too attached to it because it's a Kuwahara and it's green.



    It's a 1985 Kuwahara Siera Grande that would have been considered and marketted as a mountain bike in it's day but it's touring / road heritage is plain to see.

    With a 28/38/48 drive it was really set up for the road and light trails and I'll be getting it come slicker and narrower tires later today.

    Green is my favourite colour and it even has a Terry saddle.

    I am going to throw caution to the wind and use the bike for some short errands today as it's in perfectly rideable shape.

    Marin2.jpgMy 96 Marin San Rafael. I bought this originally because I thought that it would be a good "lock up downtown or at the train station" kind of bike, one that I wouldn't get too attached to if it were to be stolen. But over the years I've come to really appreciate what a great, all round commuter it is. Original except for BMX pedals, a Terry saddle ( hidden under a lycra cover to deter thieves) and a slight alteration to the length of the flat bars. I shortened them about 1 1/2 inches and added the ends. I keep the frame bag on there, the homage to the 90's Greg Lemond panniers and a Fat Tire Ale bottle opener...

    Nice! I also have a Kuwahara Sierra that I bought brand new, I think, in 1988 or 1989 -- I saved up for a rew months to buy it (iirc I paid about $900 or so for it -- a good deal I got through a friend that owned a bike shop). It has a complete set of Deore components on it. I still have it and have been contemplating putting slicks on it and turning it into a hybrid -- it's still an exceptionally nice running bike.

    WC - Sweet bike... I love lugs.

    I know that the Shasta was a straight gauge frame in 1987 (a friend has one) but my '88 Shasta has an EX butted frame, has a hand built decal, and is far lighter than it's predecessors. I wonder if the later model Sierra also got an upgraded tubeset ?

    I always like to be able to ad to my Kuwahara / Apollo lore.

    My Sierra frame was built with Ishawata Quad-butted chromoly. The forks are Tange chromoly. The bike is fairly light (for it's day) and has really pleasant ride characteristics.

    More pictures of the bike are posted here:

    My black beauty. I've since raised the saddle too, if I remember correctly, I raised the saddle during this break.

    WC - Your Sierra is built to the same specs as my 1987 Kuwahara Cascade... does it have a handbuilt sticker on it as well ?

    I am quite sure the Cascade became or offered a sloping top tube model in 1989... I have seen one and it was even lugged with an Ishiwata frame.

    Yup, the hand built sticker with the thumbprint is there. I'm not very familiar with the Cascade model.
