I have a '94 Expert, double butted cromo, not the newer amuminum frame, and I think it is great. It had downtube shifers and a 7 speed rearend, so I upgraded with RSX STI shifters when they came out.
I also changed the 52-42-30 to a 52-42-26, and the 13-28 to a 12-28.
Mine has carried panniers on the front and back.
Only complaint is at 35 MPH it starts to shimmy. That may be my fault. I was between sizes, and the thinking at the time was to use small frames and extend the seat post and stem. So it may not have that problem with a larger frame for my size.
It doesn't get much use now. The recumbent is so much nicer to ride.
