    Man, I don't mind stem shifters, kind of like the turkey levers (on the bike I put them on) and I like the Suntour chrome dork disk on my Trek 400- I'm going to look for a few more.

    I like...

    It's not exactly what you're talking about- but I have a 78 Trek 730 that now sports a rack, a triple crankset, 28s and Suntour Cyclone bits- 32s won't fit under the brake bridge and just BARELY...

    Try using some Massengill.

    If they're still bothering you after that, rub some dirt on them and just do your pushups on gravel from now on.

    I don't know about tips- but I keep running across people's names and I'm reminded of all the times people have helped me, offered to help me and generally been good, kind community members.

    Rubber doesn't age well. It dries out and dry rots and cracks. Your tires are dry rotted. They will spontaneously fail.

    The bike- I always look at the bike, whether I'm passing or being passed.

    I look to see non-aero brake cables.

    In these cases, "lower quality" still means "badass bike."

    All 4 of those, including the Sequoia, look like fantastic bikes.

    If I remember right, the serial numbers are in different places on Panasonic built and Greenville built models.

    Pointing out or emphasising a gender role, or a propensity for a gender to prefer certain items isn't misogynistic or sexist- it's gender roles.

    I don't have much of an attraction to new bikes. If I were to get a new bike- it would be a whole lot like one of my 30 year old bikes with some 25 year old components. :D

    I think that was a clever hint to post pix. :D

    Regarding your bike- My guess is that it was an unsold 86 Passage, built and shipped for the 87 year. See if the SN is an 86 serial number, and the...

    I'd ask JohnDThompson his opinion on the Gran Compe centerpulls.

    IIRC, he built his 720 with cantis before they were offered with cantis- but still has a high opinion of those centerpulls.

    Congratulations!

    I hope it is that bike- I love seeing "then and now" type things- and it's always cool to know the provenance of something old that you have.
