    HOTTT... Classic color scheme for the bike frame, love the black and white framing the "corners" being the handlebars, saddle, and wheels. And I usually dislike classic frames with new wheels. Nice job!

    Haha yes, you caught me. Shifters, Brakes, Derailleurs, are Hubs and Dura Ace 7700. But the crank was switched to a newer external bottom bracket type (Ultegra 6600 Compact).

    I might take off those yellow tires one of these days, but I think it looks pretty cool.

    I'm always amazed how much conversation that Centurion creates... after all these years... not bad! As an FYI... the stem is an EA70, but I couldn't find something the same period as the stem (that replaced an original Sugino alloy) so it is 2013 black with grey fade lettering.

    I generally don't care for aero frames, but that Litespeed just looks fast! I give it a hot.

    Both. I don't like where my hands are relative to the brake levers when I'm in the drops, compared to a traditional bend bar.

    Levers are too high.

    Also, another classic wrecked by ugly wheels, they aren't as ugly as the ones on the Centurion, though.

    Yeah I'm not sure I like them either. I think a compact dropbar might be in my future since I've never tried one of those. finding them in vintage sizes is tough though.

    ^he said wheels, not tires...

    As to the vintage Trek, not hot in my vote. Nice try but somehow it doesn't all work as well as the Centurion.
    Seat post is strange, photo is taken too low, bottle cages are clunky looking, bars are not attractively shaped, sorry it's a Not for me.

    Not to mention the shifters. Blech, Shimano is fugly.
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

    There isn't anything tough about it. Soma sells them all day long.

    Funny you say that, I just stumbled across the Hwy One today as a matter of fact. Very nice. A little pricey but nice shapes.

    Pricy? They are half of what a lot of other bars cost. They are a little heavy, but finished very nicely for the price.
