    I got a Zoot Tri Suit, but only because I got it on clearnace and it was cheaper than buying separates.

    It's comfortable enough, although as MikeD1 points out, it makes it somewhat a pain to hit...

    Very nice. I like that era too. Clean and quick looking. :)

    The current gfx with the "courier" style font looks a little too plain to me. The vigorelli in celeste is classy looking, but the...

    I found the S/N - N9S6988. Based on the decoding available online, it's an 89. That seems too new to me (a non-expert!) based on the other components and the 5 speed cassette, but who knows how...

    Looks good. Always nice to see a cousin of my Imola. I like the gfx from that era better than the current Imola/Pista/Vigorelli's.

    Centurion Lemans - 1970s?

    Picked this up today. Any help figuring out what I bought is most appreciated. I found the page on Sheldon Brown's site that tells me it's probably 1970s and not 1980s.

    With a few minutes...

    Local races usually treat me the best. Nothing like packing up the night before, sleeping in your own bed, and hopping in the car after a breakfast in your own kitchen.

    We started off biking in 2008, wanting to lose weight and get more fit.

    I didn't want to be "on a diet" so we didn't follow any particular plan or gimmick. We generally just ate better and...
