    You'll love the ride, I'm sure.

    I have one the exact year and color scheme (just a few sizes bigger) that I acquired as frame/fork/headset/post/shifters and refitted.

    The one I picked up was in...

    Neat. If they simply reversed the colors for the 'special edition', I seem to recall that the ice-cream-pink & black 912 scheme as 1985 (or '86?), or thereabouts at least.

    I have one, '85 or '86...

    Wowza. That is definitely one of the nice ones. Nice equiment on it, too.

    Just my size, as well. A little jealous.

    I'm a bit amused that the TT reads 'hand crafted by Joe Gardin'. I've been led...

    I've been looking for a Cyclops, built by Canadian builder Mike Mulholland in the 1980s or very early 90s - beautiful road bikes, I've heard great things about the ride from some, and I covet one...

    I thought so - it was wayyy out of town in a semi-rural area, and no description to speak of in the CL ad, but the folks had business in the city and met me 15mins from my place with a helluva nice...

    Catch of the day:

    1991/92 Schwinn Paramount PDG Series 30 Mountain bike…loving' the splatter, and it looks basically unused (great Deore LX components all around, showing very little wear).

    Believe so, mainly. SIS cable pull should be the same. A little adjustment of the limit screw and I imagine you'd be good to go.

    I'd echo 1050-series 105, RX100 or Deore LX or DX from around the same period as the bike or a little bit later - all good alternatives that are built to last, and I suspect a short cage version of...

    I think that's pretty much the idea: to keep the foot securely (and comfortably?) in place.

    I have wide feet, and thus avoid Campy-clone road pedals like the plague. Stabby. I run Suntour...

    Yes indeed. Noted prior to my PM/Post. Just what I need to refresh (and widen the range on) my 7sp tricolor setup on the Marinoni...:thumb:

    Thanks for noticing, and for giving me the heads up.

    All of my bikes but one are legal drinking age; the oldest in the house is my girlfriend's '71 International, and most of mine fall somewhere in the 1980s.

    I'll be 31 at the end of June.

    This is a very nice bicycle. I would check if the seat post and stem move freely, just to avoid a possible headache with stuck/corroded parts - but I, too, would very happily pay $50 for frame...
