    Whether the stem would fail or not is immaterial. It's a counterfeit part. Knowingly purchasing a counterfeit product is illegal. Even forgetting the legal part, though, it's just damn WRONG to...

    How do you know this? If they're selling it as an FSA when it's not an FSA, do you really expect them to be honest and contentious enough to make a quality product that won't get someone killed?

    That's a Gen-U-ine counterfeit FSA stem. I would assume that the strength and carbon is as fake as the labels on it.

    Hmmm....
    Well, the 77-78 Professionals (Mark V) had semi-wrap seatstays, which this one has. I did see the bit about the windowed lugs, though.
    The dropouts are Campy front and rear. He only has...

    We think we've determined that it's a 1977-78 Raleigh Professional. Any other opinions?

    Need some help IDing a bike for a friend

    He got this bike from a neighbour's garage, but has no idea what it is. Everyone at RBR is similarly perplexed. It was suggested that maybe the classic gurus here could identify it, and I agree...

    Yes, except those are total crap. Look at the pads. Those are *maybe* one step up from WalMart bike caliper brakes.

    That would be highly unusual.

    It's possible the hanger was installed while the paint was still a little wet.

    What is "actually correct", Sport? I said it was a year old. You said it was "outdated". I said it was 5600. You babbled something about 7700 or 7800 or something. It is last year's Shimano 105...

    You shouldn't be surprised. A lot of these people probably think that Treks are the pinnacle of bicycle development.

    And my point is, aside from you, who gives a sh!+? Cost was a major factor to consider in the OPs post, and the best way to keep cost down is to go with last year's model.

    Last year is hardly "outdated"...

    It's $400 for the drivetrain. Wholesale cost on the STIs is slightly over $200. It's a hell of a deal for someone who doesn't want to spend a lot.

    He's getting more insane. Maybe he needs $$ to buy crack?

    He just listed a shiny new BELL coin holder for 2010 Camaro and Corvette.
